PwC has an extensive bursary scheme. The bursary scheme aims to attract to the firm exceptional young people who are unusually talented. It is financial assistance given to students for further studies. Bursaries are awarded to students with a very good record of academic work at school and/or university; the amount of the bursary will depend on evidence that you cannot afford all the costs of the programme. It will only cover a portion of tuition fees, accommodation and books. Therefore you must be prepared to pay some of the costs. Bursaries have conditions attached to them. When you complete your studies successfully, you will be required to work for PwC on a training contract.
