Learners bursaries

PwC has a bursary scheme that aims to attract exceptional young people who are unusually talented to the firm.

PwC offers a variety of funding opportunities, and bursaries are awarded to students with an outstanding academic track record at school and/or university. Bursaries are awarded on condition that when you complete your studies successfully, you will be required to complete a training contract with PwC, gaining hands-on experience in the business.

We offer three types of bursaries to students:

  • Merit bursary: a once-off payment, paid directly to the university
  • Tuition bursary: a full tuition bursary plus a book allowance
  • Full bursary: a full tuition and accommodation bursary (at an on-campus student residence) plus a book and meal allowance
