    Our commitment to social mobility
    We're committed to supporting applicants through our process. To ensure everyone has the best chance of being successful, and to enhance social mobility, we offer additional coaching for applicants who attend a state school AND meet one or more of the following criteria:
  • your parents have not attended University,
  • you have been in receipt of Free School Meals at any point during your school career,
  • you attend a school with a higher than average proportion of students in receipt of Free School Meals (this will be determined based on the school postcode you provide).

  • If you're eligible for this additional support we'll contact you to invite you to a coaching day near you and offer you ongoing support from application through to assessments.

    If you're not eligible, then don't worry, you can still access support online and through your local recruitment team and we'll communicate with you throughout the process to ensure you can access the tools to help you with your application.

    We'll use your responses to the equal opportunities questions in your application to determine your eligibility, so if you would prefer not to disclose your social mobility status, simply answer 'prefer not to say' to these questions in your application. This personal information will not be used for any other purpose than to determine your eligibility to attend a coaching and selection day and will not be used to make recruitment decisions.

    “I wanted to thank you for running such a great week, I loved being a part of the PwC community and it was a very informative week which has certainly inspired me for the future. I was hoping that either yourself or Humaid may be able to provide me with a reference, as I hope to use this for my UCAS and any future job opportunities. This would be greatly appreciated.”
