The UK Apprentice Award supports Mauritian undergraduate students during their UK university journey. The benefits of the Award go far beyond providing you with financial assistance for your university education. We can help your personal and professional development in different ways – through mentoring, a monetary award of up to GBP 1000 and the opportunity to join PwC Mauritius for a paid internship at a time of your convenience.
Each year we'll announce 3 Award winners. While we'll have a quick look at your academic performance through your CPA/GPA, we'll be more interested to see your creativity, communication skills and how you are making a difference in the UK.
Apply today and your name could be among the 3 Award winners that we'll announce in June. Check out the timeline for the UK Apprentice Award below.
You can count on us to keep both your results and video strictly confidential. These will be reviewed by designated staff from our Human Capital department only.
Partners Robert Coutet and Olivier Rey were in the UK for a Careers Roadshow in November 2018 where they've met with around 150 students at five locations. Robert and Olivier have discussed career opportunities in Mauritius and the ways in which PwC can support the Mauritius Diaspora in their UK university journey.
The Careers Roadshow was also an opportunity for Robert and Olivier to launch the UK Apprentice Programme. If you are a Mauritian national, currently studying at undergraduate level at a UK university, you can stand a chance to be among one of the next Award winners.
