About Computer Science (Digital & Technology Solutions), BSc (Hons) - at University of Leeds

Computer science is a dynamic and fast-moving area. It is vital to how we live in the digital age, and how we seek to evolve in every part of our lives. From games to cyber-security, from finance to analysis of business and networks, from engineering to medicine - the next generation of computer science will help to meet some of the major challenges facing the modern world.

Successful computer scientists are not only skilled programmers, they are also highly creative thinkers and problem-solvers who are adept at handling complex information. Computing touches every industry, everywhere, so computer scientists are in demand across all sorts of sectors and are usually at the forefront of new technological developments.

This four-year course combines a computer science degree, fully funded in Partnership with PwC, giving you all the advantages of a university education as well as the unique insight that comes from paid work experience. As an added benefit, your university tuition fees are fully funded by PwC, and as a PwC employee you'll also receive a salary.

As a computer science student, you'll be taught in our brand-new, purpose-built hub for students and academics - the Sir William Henry Bragg Building - which is home to world-leading research and specialised teaching facilities and laboratories. The Bragg Centre is where scientists and engineers work collaboratively to develop solutions for economical, societal and technical challenges in the UK.

You'll be taught by experts and undertake project work every year to build the range of skills you'll need during your professional career. You'll also undertake two summer placements at the end of your first and second year, followed by a full-year placement in your third year: all of these are hosted by PwC.

You'll work on a range of projects, solving important business and technology problems for PwC's internal and external clients. With a wide range of teams, you could gain exposure into Cyber Security, Data and Analytics, Technology Consulting, Forensic Technology as well as our internal central Technology teams.

Pathways include Cyber Security, Data Analyst, Technology Architect, "Development, Build, Test", Tech Compliance, Tech Strategy & Tech Delivery.

At the end of the apprenticeship, you'll have the chance to continue your career at PwC as a graduate and beyond, using the skills, network and experience you've gained.
