Hello I just have some questions about the pwc courses at Newcastle, reading and Manchester
1. Am I able to apply to more than just one or am I only limited to applying to one of the 3
2. Do I have to do any online tests for any of them
3. How serious/professional is the interview or is it more of a chat ?

Hello,I received an offer for the course at the university of Nottingham last year, so I will answer your questions to the best of my knowledge. 1) I believe that you can apply to as many of them as you want; UCAS sees them as separate courses, and poses no restrictions as a result.2) As part of the entry requirements, PWC's system will require you to complete a 'Game based assessment'. This assessment focuses on personality traits such as patience and persistence etc... I applied for accountancy and had a numerical test at the end of this psychometric calculator. 3) The 'interview' that you are referring too, is not your traditional post-graduate job interview. The first career interview is pre-recorded questions where you asked the traditional 'Why PWC' etc... Which I did not find serious at all. After all, you are speaking to your camera. In addition, I believe that there is an interview at the end of the assessment day. However, I did not have to do this day in person due to COVID-19 restrictions. I would say it is unlikely that these will take place this year either unless we a dramatic shift in office based work dynamics. Best of luck and let me know if there is anything I can help you with.
Hi, did you accept the offer? I'm interested in how the programme actually is. How they structure the paid placements and the salary

Hi, i did accept the offer but i will not be starting until next year. Consequently, i have no clue regarding salary’s. in terms of structure; it is a 4 year course with work placements in the ONLY the final 3 years. It is a term a year in the audit department. Don’t hold me up on this but i believe it is the first term in year 2&3, and the final term in year 4.

You will be considered for the normal course. Not necessarily 100% a place but you will be considered.
