Flying Start degree programme, Ulster University, Belfast, 2021

If you want to go to university but are also keen to begin your career, or perhaps you’ve had a change of heart about your chosen route, our Flying Start degree programmes offer you the chance to experience the best of both worlds. 

As an apprentice on the Flying Start Business Management programme, you’ll get to work with world-class clients and be part of our highly skilled teams within Operate Northern Ireland Business whilst also studying at Ulster University, you’ll get your career off to a Flying Start before you even graduate from university. 

The degree is fully-funded which means you don’t need to pay your tuition fees, and as a PwC apprentice, you’ll be paid a salary and receive benefits right from day one. So you’ll still get to experience the student lifestyle and the perks of being a student, without the student debt.

What you’ll do

Most of your week will be spent working in the business, learning on-the-job, but you’ll attend university on a day release basis.  You’ll study towards a BSc Hons Leading on Customer Operations over four years, and you’ll complete a Higher Level Apprenticeship.

The duration of study towards the Flying Start Business Management degree programme is  four years but your progression will continue beyond your qualification as you progress your career in business and have access to the breadth of opportunities available at PwC. 

What you’ll need

  • You’ll need to be on target for, or have achieved at least a 112 UCAS tariff (excluding General Studies) from up to three full A-Levels (or equivalent), and a Grade C or 4 or above in GCSE (or equivalent) English Language and Mathematics.
  • Exams must have been taken in the same sitting and resits are accepted only where modules or papers have been retaken in the same academic year. If you have any extenuating circumstances related to your exam marks or the sequencing of your exams, please declare this on your application and this will be considered as we review your application.

It is envisaged that applications will reopen for a second recruitment drive w/c 7 June.
