Course summary

Our unique BSc Computer Science with Digital Partnership Degree Apprenticeship with PwC will allow you to gain valuable work experience alongside learning the fundamentals of computer science, preparing you for a successful career within a digital technology team.

Our programme enables you to enjoy the best of both worlds as it's one of a kind and allows you to both study and work at the same time. Your first and second year will be spent at University, whilst undertaking placements with PwC the technology teams at PwC during part of your summer outside of term-time. Your whole third year will be spent working for PwC the company, before returning to University for your fourth and final year. Thanks to our partnership with PwC, all of your tuition fees are fully funded by PwC and you will also receive a competitive salary throughout your four years on the course, even when you’re at university. Upon graduation, PwC hopes that you will continue your career with them in one of their technology teams, however there is no obligation to do so.

The transition to University level learning can be difficult and that is why in your first year we ensure you study the key components of computer science to ensure you have a firm foundation in the principles of algorithms, AI, software engineering and relevant maths. You will also learn Java and functional programming alongside business-related subjects to compliment your placements.


PwC will offer you a graduate job at the end of the degree programme providing you meet their performance criteria.

When you graduate, you could obtain a role working for PwC in various areas of the company, which could include being a Cyber Security Advisory Associate, Technology Risk Associate or working in Data and Analytics.


During your placements you will be productively employed and play an active, and valued, part on project teams and will make meaningful contributions to fee earning client projects. You will be equipped with the opportunity to apply your learning in a challenging but fully supported environment. PwC has a client base ranging from local to multinational and global companies, across all sectors and industries.

You will be fully supported when on placement with PwC, you will have a dedicated people manager, buddies, mentors, a dedicated development team, and will still be able to access all of the University support systems too.

Alongside developing your technical skills through your placements with PwC you will develop a combination of interpersonal skills (eg rapport building, behavioural styles, working in a team and networking) and consulting skills, (eg models of consulting, distinctive business advisor, change management and analytical skills) embedding the PwC Experience.
