The Flying Start Financial Bursary is aimed at supporting students with the day-to-day costs of university life. At PwC, the development and wellbeing of people is paramount, and the company are delighted to be able to award a substantial bursary to support our students with their studies in accountancy.

If you meet the criteria, and you successfully join the BSc Accountancy (Flying Start) programme in September 2023, a £10,000 bursary will be awarded to you, split across the four years of the degree.

In years 2, 3 and 4, you will undertake paid placements with PwC as part of the course, and the bursary payments are lowered to reflect this.

Once you have applied for the BSc Accountancy (Flying Start) programme, PwC will contact you to gather information to assess your eligibility for the bursary. 

The criteria for the bursary is:

  • You are classed as a 'home student', which normally means you are a UK national. Please visit our fee status page for more information on whether you are classed as a 'home student.'
  • You have applied to study BSc Accountancy Flying Start for September 2023 entry.
  • You have a household income of under £35,000 per annum, as assessed by Student Finance England (this will be assessed once you are accepted onto the degree programme and apply for student finance).
  • You can demonstrate your commitment to a career in audit at PwC, during their assessment process.
  • You attend a non-fee paying school. PwC will review applications from those who received a scholarship or bursary to attend a fee-paying school on a case-by-case basis.

This award will be paid in addition to the Queen Mary Bursary (if you are eligible), and any funding you receive from Student Finance England.

If you have any questions that are not answered above, then please contact us.
