for distance learning degrees in PSB / Kaplan, honestly you stand a greater chance applying to mid-tier firms before hopping over to big4 after the 2year bond... i've heard many SIM UOL graduates not receiving a reply from Big4 (be it fresh / experienced associates)

and lastly, yes, it doesn't matter how many years of experience you have... you have no bargaining power since you are going to start at entry position... and even you are joining as an experienced associate, the "title" that they will be offering you will roughly let you know the salary band already,

i.e. SA2 or M1 or AM, etc
Typically those SIM-UOL grads who managed to get into Big 4 as fresh grads were those who actively networked during their undergrad days. Never heard of anyone from PSB/Kaplan who entered Big 4 as a fresh grad.
