Pwc bursaries are offered to students who are confident with their academic performance and results. The Pwc bursary amount will vary depending on supplied proof that you are not able to afford the full study fees. Students who are successful and are awarded with the bursary will have to work on a training contract with PwC when you complete your studies.
Who Can Apply For Pwc Bursaries?
Pwc bursaries are awarded to students who are pursuing studies towards undergraduate and/or postgraduate studies in the following fields:
- BCom IT/ Informatics
- Engineering Management
- BSc IT/ Computer Science
- BSc IS/ Information Systems
- Actuarial Science/Mathematics
The bursary applicant must be enrolled in any of the above degrees
If you are an undergraduate student you must pass all your university courses with an average of at least 70%
If you are a postgraduate student you must pass all your university courses with an average of at least 60%
Students should be able to display that they have good personal skills and are able to relate to other people. You also need to show that you have leadership skills. For example, you can make things happen because you have a strong personality, or you explain things so clearly. It is important to be able to assess a situation and start working on it independently; you must also recognise that teamwork can be equally important.
As a recent graduate you may well be continuing with your studies after joining PwC. We recognise how important this is to you and to us as a firm. Our study support programmes are there to help you.
Financial Assistance for Studies
Financial assistance for further study is provided in the form of a bursary. The bursary will support further study in an area which is directly relevant to the employee’s position in the firm at that time. Study must be through an accredited university, college or other appropriate institution.
Will I be given enough study leave?
Study leave decisions are based on the firm’s policy. Study leave depends on the level of the course and the number of times you have already attempted it.
