University of Birmingham has opted into the TEF and received a Gold award.
Note: There is currently a review underway of Degree Apprenticeships in England being conducted by the Institute for Apprenticeships and Technical Education. Depending on the outcome of this review, the University of Birmingham may have to make some changes to the Degree Apprenticeship programme. In this instance, successful applicants would still be offered a place on the BSc in Computer Science. The University of Birmingham is also working with PwC to develop an alternative programme, but the fundamental model of the programme would differ and students would fund their own tuition fees. While it is our intention and hope that we can continue our Degree Apprenticeship programme under the current arrangements for 2021 and beyond, this is entirely dependent on the outcome of the external review. The University of Birmingham and PwC have worked together to offer a traditional university degree combined with practical work based technology projects and industry experience. This Level 6 degree apprenticeship is one of a kind and tuition fees are full paid for by PwC, as well as students receiving a monthly salary. Computer Science is a dynamic discipline. What began with the curiosity of only a handful of academics has blossomed into a field with an impact on our lives that would have astonished many pioneers. In the past 50 years computers have contributed to numerous advances in almost every field, yet developments still show no sign of slowing. Do you want a traditional university degree, but would like to start earning a salary now? Do you have a strong work ethic and can be disciplined with your study? Do you want to start your technology career with a leading employer? If you answered yes to any of these questions then this new and exciting degree could be right for you. This four-year programme, designed in partnership with PwC will allow you receive an outstanding education from one of the UK's top ten Computer Science departments, whilst also gaining work experience with PwC's Tech teams during placements. On these placements you will get to work with some of the biggest brands in the world, and the work itself can often be front page news. You will spend your first and second year at University, undertaking placements at PwC outside of term-time and your whole third year will be spent working at PwC, before you return to University for your fourth year. You will experience university life and study alongside work experience and skills training.
- Work experience with a leading organisation: You will be employed full-time by PwC and earn a competitive salary.
- A degree from a highly ranked university: The University of Birmingham is a top 100 global university and Computer Science is ranked 8th in the UK.
- A job offer: PwC will offer you a graduate job at the end of the degree programme providing you meet their performance criteria.
