Course summary

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.
All your University tuition fees are fully funded by PwC, and as a PwC employee, you’ll receive a salary each month Applications for this programme will be simultaneously considered for a salaried apprenticeship position with PwC. Applicants who meet the academic requirements for Computer Science degrees who are not offered an apprenticeship position will be made an offer of a place for our G400 BSc Computer Science programme.
