The Flying Start degree is an exciting and challenging four-year programme that will give you the benefit of going to university, getting paid work experience and fast tracking your career. This programme has been developed in partnership with PwC, the UK’s leading professional services organisation, and the Institute of Chartered Accountants in England and Wales (ICAEW).
