  2. I'm a student of one of the best private universities in the country, can I apply, though I'm on a second class lower

    1. Hello, sponsors can be strict in enforcing clearly stated eligibility criteria. In this instance, one of the requirements clearly state:

      ...a minimum of second class upper degree...

      So if you are on a second class lower degree, you must know ab initio that your application will most likely be unsuccessful.

      Yet just like every other thing in life, if you truly desire it, nothing stops you from applying at the very least. Who knows what might come out of it in the end? Just try out your luck!

      All the best!

  3. To obtain a transcript in my school requires a period of about 5 to 6 wks and i will not be able to meet up with the deadline can i get a confirmation of my current CGPA from my course adviser instead?

    1. Hello Anonymous, i know obtaining transcripts from Nigerian universities can be a herculean task. If you can get your course adviser to OFFICIALLY confirm your current CGPA, yes, this should be better than nothing at all.

      That being said, it is important to note that provider of sponsorships or internships might be strict in the application of stipulated requirements.

      Thanks for dropping by, and goodluck as you apply!

    2. Note that in the past i.e. in previous years, there were no deadlines for applying, students applied whenever they were ready to apply and KPMG contacted them thereafter. However, because of high volumes of applications, KPMG has now introduced application periods and deadlines.

    1. @Phubbie we're very sorry for this late response. Strictly speaking, if you've concluded your masters you're no longer eligible to apply for this internship but you could visit the KPMG site to apply for a job. However, like we have continued to advise others on this forum, there's no harm in trying out your luck

    1. @Opeyemi, for this 2016 call for applications, you're currently eligible for the undergraduate internship program. You'll become eligible for the graduate program AFTER you gain admission into a graduate program. Thus, in answer to your query, you're currently ineligible for the graduate internship program
