The week-long programme supports Gatsby Benchmark 5 (encounters with employers and employees) and will offer an insight into PwC and professional services, with participants able to choose the sessions most relevant to them. Their Student Recruitment team will also be running employability sessions that will help students feel more confident when they begin their career search. 

No experience is required to apply, but they do ask for students to be on track for 96 UCAS points. 

If you’re interested in a career in the world of accounting, business or technology, PwC’s Virtual Insight Week programme gives you the opportunity to learn more about these areas and develop your employability skills so you feel confident when you start exploring your career. 

 During this action packed week, you’ll be able to attend a blend of live and pre-recorded sessions, which can be tailored to your interests, and hear from PwC’s people who’ll share their stories and be happy to answer any questions you have.
