Hey everyone!

This thread is for all 2020 applicants of PWC Tech apprenticeships / degree courses:

** Computer Science with Digital Technology Partnership - University of Birmingham
** Computer Science (Digital & Technology Solutions) - University of Leeds
** Software Engineering with Digital Technology Partnership - Queen's University Belfast
** Data Science - University of Edinburgh
** Data Science - University of St Andrews

I'm Adam, currently studying Access to HE: Computer Science at Leeds City College as a mature student.

Would be great to hear the experience from existing students and also how the applications are going for student currently applying.

I’m interested in applying for the Flykng Start Program at Leeds University but I can’t find any information about how to actually apply for the course/program. Do I apply through UCAS? And if so do I need to specify it’s with PWC?

Anyone know if there's a catch to this program like having to work for PwC for some amount of time afterwards? (other than the degrees appearing very tailored to work in their company)

Yeah you need to apply through UCAS, visit their website and find the technology degree apprenticeship at Leeds and it will have a link to their UCAS page. I'm not sure whether you have to specify if it's with PwC or not though, maybe if you contact them they will give you a clear answer.

How did it go? What type of questions did they ask?
It’s not really that difficult. They just present you with a situation and give you 4 possible actions to take. You tick the one you think is best and cross the one you think is the worst.

I'm not sure but as soon as I completed the situational judgement I got an email to do the game based assessment.
Have you done the game based assessment?

If you have is it better to do it on mobile or laptop?

Oh no, I think you may get automatically considered for the computer science degree without the PWC element. How was the game based assessment?

I've applied to two universities for the flying start programme so if I fail the pwc tests do I get rejected from both universities?
From both the apprenticeships yes but not from the unis

It was literally a game with a Numerical test at the end. It tests your reflexes, but at the end they give you a report on your behaviour which I’m confused as to how they got that from someone’s reflexes.

But I think it’s about how quickly you grasp the game concept as well and learn patterns.

Hi. Has anyone done the career conversation (online interview) for PWC flying start programme accounting? What type of questions do they ask in the career
This thread is for those applying to technology degree apprenticeships with PWC. It would be best for you to start another thread or join the many other threads that relate directly to PWC accounting. You would most likely find better answers there.

How did you find out? I've had an email saying I've completed it but it only had a "feedback report" which didn't mention anything about results.
