BSc Computer Science with Digital Technology Partnership - PwC (G402)
The University of Birmingham is launching a new four year degree apprenticeship, in collaboration with PwC.
Starting in 2018, the BSc Computer Science with Digital Technology will initially see students combining university life with practical work-based technology projects at PwC, Birmingham. Our students will study a common first and second year, which will allow us to provide an in depth computer science education to all students, and provide guaranteed prerequisites for all final year modules. This will allow you to go to even greater depth in specialist content of your choice as our final year modules are predominantly optional. You will spend your penultimate year working in industry for PwC, before returning to study your final optional modules.
Year 1 (120 credits) - compulsory
All first year students will study a set of compulsory modules, which will include two 10 credit modules in The Business School . Students that do not hold Grade A in A Level Computing will undertake weekly tutorials in programming.
