What you need
At least a 2:1 degree, though a 2:2 is acceptable if that applicant also has a post-graduate degree, and 280 UCAS points is the requirement for BT's graduate programmes. A grade B in GCSE maths is required for the Finance roles. Applicants should posses integrity, leadership, team-work and communication skills, be well coordinated, creative and enthusiastic in the area they have applied for. Strong business acumen is also a useful quality for all schemes.
