All routes offer you the same deal. The opportunity to grow as an individual, to meet new people, and build lasting relationships that will stay with you for life.
Initially yes you’ll earn a lower salary, however once you finish your apprenticeship programme you’ll be on a competitive salary for the market. If you're performing well you’ll reach senior positions quicker than graduates, without the university debt.
As an apprentice you won’t get stuck doing the photocopying and making the tea, you’re involved in projects straight away. Our apprentices are engaged in hands-on projects in client-facing roles.
All new joiners at PwC are supported by many people, including a people manager, career coach and buddy. They’ll help you to get settled, make new friends, and get to grips with your new working environment. You’ll be able to join sports teams, diversity networks and other social interest groups, social parties, team away days, and six days of volunteering a year to name a few.
No, we recruit a lot of students and the average age at PwC is only 33.
PwC is a great place to start your career, and if after you complete your apprenticeship you decide it’s time to move on, having experience at PwC on your CV will definitely get you noticed. Gaining additional qualifications, such as the ACA, through your training gives you more relevant experience and credibility to a career in accountancy than any degree.
Progression is based on merit throughout the firm, regardless of entry route.
A degree apprenticeship is a Level 6 apprenticeship, which is a blend of study at university and work placements at PwC. PwC offers Technology and Data Science degree apprenticeships at a range of top universities across the UK. These degree apprenticeships are fully-funded and students come out with a degree, an apprenticeship and normally a permanent job offer.
Our Flying Start Degree Programme, which we offer in Accounting and Business are similar to degree apprenticeships but do not follow the apprenticeship framework, however they do combine the study at university with paid placements at PwC. The Flying Start Degrees are non funded. Again these are offered at a range of top universities across the country.
An apprenticeship at PwC does not involve studying at university. This is a full time role which will involve you studying towards a professional qualification alongside your Level 4 or Level 7 apprenticeship. PwC funds your qualification and any resources you need to complete it, and you’ll also receive a full time salary as an employee at PwC. We offer apprenticeships in a range of different business areas across our UK offices.
We aim to open for all available opportunities at the same time in autumn so that you can see the full range of opportunities available to you. Roles are filled on an ongoing basis. To be the first to hear when our applications open you can sign up to our Talent Community.
Roles are filled on an ongoing basis unless otherwise stated on the job description. We may close to new applications if we’ve received a high volume of applications so we therefore recommend applying early. Please take note of the completion deadlines in your invitation email for every application stage, which is usually seven days from receiving the invite. Assessment centre dates are included on the job description when you apply.
Most of our graduate programmes require a passed degree but for some roles we also require UCAS points. Please check individual job descriptions for academic requirements.
We’ll need further information from you so we can consider the impact any extenuating circumstances may have had on your grades.
You’ll have to wait six months from the date you took your online assessment before re-applying. If you apply again before this date your application will be automatically rejected.
Yes we do. We welcome applications from candidates who can switch from a Tier 4 (General) Student visa but there are restrictions to some of our business areas and office locations so please visit our work permits page for more information and to see where restrictions apply.
Not at all, we welcome students from all degree disciplines. It doesn’t matter what degree you’re studying for – in fact most of our business areas accept students from any discipline. But you must have a good academic record and be able to show how you’ve used your initiative and team-working skills before and at university.
Yes of course, we welcome all students from all backgrounds. What’s important to us is a good academic record and your ability to show us how you’ve used your initiative and team working skills to align with the PwC Professional.
We only accept one application from you in a six month period.
If you’d like to be considered for a different opportunity you’ll need to withdraw your application and reapply after six months.
There is a specific section on the application form where you’ll be able to add detail of your extenuating circumstances. Please provide us with the full detail so that our screening team can assess.
When completing your application form, please select the relevant exam type and grade that appear on your exam certificates. Please do not convert your grades to UK equivalents. If you're unable to find your exact exam type / grade combination in the academic achievements dropdown, please select "other" and free-type your exact results. All grades are verified as part of our pre-employment screening process and we take any discrepancies very seriously. If you're unsure how to complete your application form, please contact our student helpline on freephone 0808 100 1500, from outside the UK: +44 (0)1952 568470 or contact our Student Recruitment team via our recruitment queries webpage.
You can only submit one application at a time and commitment to your chosen business area is important. If you’re not successful then you can apply again six months after you have taken the first online assessment.
You'll need to wait six months from the date you took your online assessment before applying again. When you re-apply, your previous application is disregarded so you have a fresh start.
Unfortunately, you can’t count AS grades towards your UCAS Tariff. Your total points score is taken from up to three full A-Levels, excluding resits, which are taken in the same sitting (excluding General Studies). Where you’ve taken more than three full A-levels in a single sitting, we’ll use your highest grades. If you have any extenuating circumstances related to your exam marks, the qualifications you’ve taken or the sequencing of these, you should declare this on your application form and this will be considered as we review your application.
We'll accept applications where modules or papers have been retaken within the same academic year, however we're unable to accept a full subject retake. Your overall first A-Level grade attempt is what you'll need to apply with. If you have any extenuating circumstances related to your exam marks, you should declare this on your application form and this will be considered as we review your application.
All of our recruitment is managed through our website https://www.pwc.co.uk/careers.html. Any unsolicited offers of roles that don’t originate from applications via this website will not have been sent by PwC and should be ignored.

Once you’ve submitted your application you should create your candidate home as soon as possible. You’ll be asked to complete our online assessment, the first stage of our selection process. You’ll have seven days to complete the online assessment.
If you’re successful with your online assessment, you’ll then be invited to complete a video interview. Once you have been sent your invitation, you’ll then have seven days to complete your video interview. If you’re successful with your video interview you’ll be invited to the assessment centre at least seven days prior to the assessment event. You can find out the dates of the assessment centres on the job description for the role you’ve applied for.
You’ll need to use Google Chrome to complete your assessment centre.
Please call our student helpline on freephone 0808 100 1500 or via our recruitment queries webpage with your candidate reference number explaining your situation and a member of our team will be in contact with you shortly.
The assessment tools give us extra information on particular areas like reasoning ability or the quality of your team working skills. It's difficult to assess these skills objectively from other parts of the selection procedure. Each assessment focuses on a specific, job-relevant skill. People who have little experience of a particular job may well be very capable of doing that job, and the test gives them the chance to prove it. All candidates for a role complete the same assessment exercises which means we can compare them fairly and objectively. You may also want to refer to our experienced hire careers if you have substantial work experience or qualifications.
We're committed to the fair and ethical use of assessment tools and provide information to help you understand why and how we use them in our recruitment process. We've also prepared a detailed statement of our commitment to all candidates.
