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. The skills you’ll learn on your paid work placements with us are extremely transferable, which means you’ll be able to work anywhere in business. While on placement you’ll get to meet our world-class clients and work alongside our highly skilled teams. During your time at university you’ll get to experience the full time student lifestyle, whilst getting paid for the work you do. You’ll gain a degree, and hopefully impress us enough to secure a place on our graduate scheme and you’ll be supported through your journey with us, receiving support from buddies, mentors, career coaches and peers.


Our innovative Technology Degree Apprenticeship and Data Science Graduate Apprenticeships are the newest degree programmes we’ve added to our Flying Start degree series. Designed in partnership with the University of Birmingham, Queen's University Belfast, University of Edinburgh, University of Leeds and University of St Andrews on these fully funded programmes (which means you don’t need to pay tuition fees!), you’ll gain a blend of work experience with our Tech teams during your periods of work based learning whilst studying towards a degree in Computer Science or Software Engineering or Data Science and gaining the relevant apprenticeship qualification too. As a PwC apprentice from day one, you’ll be paid a salary throughout your degree programme. Throughout the apprenticeship, you’ll work on cutting-edge digital and technology client projects at PwC.
