Flying Start Tech - Leeds
Flying Start degree programmes
If you want to go to university but are also keen to begin your career, our Flying Start degree programmes offer the best of both worlds.
You’ll get to work with our world-class clients and be part of our highly skilled teams. Studying at university you’ll get to experience the full-time student lifestyle alongside real work experience during your placements at PwC. On top of this, you’ll also receive a monthly salary for the full duration of the programme, alongside full funding for your tuition fees*. You’ll gain a degree, and hopefully impress us enough to secure a job with us after you graduate.
The Flying Start Technology Degree Apprenticeship programme lasts four years and will fast track your career in Technology, it can be studied at the University of Birmingham, the University of Leeds and Queen’s University Belfast.
You’ll study towards a full BSc degree in Computer Science or Software Engineering, depending on which University you attend, and gain the relevant apprenticeship qualification too. The degree is fully funded which means you don’t need to pay your tuition fees, and as a PwC apprentice from day one, you’ll be paid a salary throughout your degree programme*. During the programme you’ll have work placements with us where you’ll work on cutting-edge digital and technology projects, supporting both our internal teams and our clients. At PwC, our technology teams are diverse, ranging from Cyber Security, Data and Analytics, Technology Consulting and Forensic Technology to name but a few.
PwC reserves the right to change the funding model of this programme as a result of an ongoing review of degree apprenticeships by the Institute for Apprenticeships and Technical Education. Please see our careers website for more details. All applicants will be kept updated throughout the application process and we expect the results of the review in spring 2022.
