Academic years are known to be an overwhelming experience for most; students are still figuring themselves out and learning what they want to do in the future, setting their own career objectives and life goals as they go along. As PwC Malta and Kunsill Studenti Universitarji (KSU) kick off the third year of alliance with the current scholastic year, we look back at, and celebrate, their two years of collaboration, which aims not to define students, but to ease their pressures, by guiding them in the right direction through a series of initiatives. The achievement of empowering education whilst working towards high-level confidence, mirrors PwC's values of building trust in society and preparing students to become part of the solution to help solve social challenges.
PwC Malta and KSU recently included the release of a special episode of PwC Malta’s Trend Talk podcast ‘Working in new and unexpected ways’ guest hosted by PwC HR Manager, Vicky Soler, who was joined by the KSU president, Alex Gaglione, and Vice-President, Beppe Lauri. They covered topicalareas, such as student activism, time management skills, and fun around campus, as well as the preparation underway for the most popular event of the year, KSU Freshers’ Week. During this highly anticipated event, students get the opportunity to meet possible future employers, pick up useful merchandise and participate in social media competitions such as the one offered by PwC and KSU, which allowed one lucky student to win a MacBook Pro!
The revamped and widened purpose of the KSU x PwC Malta Common Room was designed for shaping a better academic experience. The space is renowned for being a home-away-from-home, building on a safe and cosy atmosphere to further promote a study-leisure balance, by adding an element of entertainment in an area which nonetheless allows for concentration.
During exams, PwC is often present to support students during study periods and ease the late hours contributed by the students, alongside providing healthy snacks and energy drinks to motivate and lighten the study sessions during the high-tension period. The KSU x PwC Malta Career Expo also hosts an annual event held over a duration of three days, where students can explore career opportunities offered by various stakeholders and industries and where students have the opportunity to meet possible future employers in person.

2023 is set for its strongest year yet, bringing on more engaging events with fresh opportunities to look out for, which will continue to create valuable experiences by building on a number of fun activities, whilst continuing to contribute towards the students' learning development and the importance it brings in creating their own missions and purpose.
Through supporting the student community in a number of life-long learning engagements and entertainment throughout the year, PwC Malta and KSU are both delivering on their beliefs of the potential in student activism, an important tool for giving students a voice, a catalyst for transforming social change. These initiatives are led by elevating the skills of the local young talent pool, with the aim of shaping future leaders to evolve and uplift our society and the workplace of tomorrow.
