Business Cadetships - Step 1 - Application Form

Applications are now invited from current Year 12 students.

Please fill out the Application Form below and press Submit once completed.

Required fields are marked *


Once you have successfully submitted your application form you will be given instructions by email for your school principal or his/her nominee so that he/she can fill out your School Assessment online.


It is important that you take care in writing your Application Form. Once you submit the application it cannot be revised, so it is important to carefully check what you have written, including school results, before you submit. Be sure that you include a sensible and permanent email address on your application as email is the means by which we will communicate with you. Hotmail, Gmail and Outlook accounts often block communication from PCA, therefore it is preferable to use a different address if possible.

Please note that cutting and pasting content from popular word-processing software like Microsoft Word can result in unusual characters appearing in your submitted form.


Applications close Wednesday 15th May (midnight). By that date, both this Application Form and your School Assessment must be submitted.

Well before the application deadline
, you are strongly advised to ascertain from your Careers Adviser which member of staff at your school should fill in your School Assessment. It may be your school Principal or his/her nominee.


After this date, selected applicants may be invited to undertake an online competency-based assessment. Professional Cadetships Australia will contact applicants about this assessment by email so make sure you check your email regularly.


Applicants who are not invited to undertake the competency-based assessment should not assume that they are not being considered for an interview.


All applicants will be advised by email in due course whether or not they will be given an interview.


Business Cadets are placed at UBS in Sydney. There is also the opportunity for a cadet placement at UBS in Melbourne. This opportunity is open only to Victorian students who are studying for the VCE (or IB).
