Flying Start Degree: Technology

Our Flying Start Technology Degree Apprenticeship programme lasts four years and will fast track your career in Technology.

You’ll study towards a full BSc degree in Computer Science, Software Engineering or Data Analyst, 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 client projects at PwC.
