    Any feedback on this would be greatly appreciated!
    The website doesn't give much information so I was wondering if anyone on TSR knew much about the pricewaterhousecoopers flying start scheme?
    What exactly do they pay for / fund?
    What happens when you finish university? Are you guaranteed a job at PWC afterwards? (It seems silly for them to train you and not give you a job afterwards)
    Is there much competition for this scheme?
    Do you need to achieve specific grades for them to continue funding?
    These are just general questions so any other information anyone could give me would also be really appreciated

    There are placements that take place in years 2, 3, and 4 which add up to about 11-12 months in total. You can expect to earn atleast £20,000 over the 4 year degree. PwC will not pay for tuition fee's; but the fee's are set at 80% over years 2-4 because of the placements that take place during the academic year.

    What happens when you finish university? Are you guaranteed a job at PWC afterwards? (It seems silly for them to train you and not give you a job afterwards)
    Provided you get a 2:1 and perform well on placement then you can expect to receive a job offer.


    Is there much competition for this scheme?
    Yes. I would say about 1 in 8 people get in (minimum). You have to attend an assessment day as part of the selection process.

    Do you need to achieve specific grades for them to continue funding?
    Need to achieve a 2:1 each year. N.B. this degree is significantly harder than a normal Accounting degree, so it's considerably harder to achieve a 2:1
