Our experience is that Durham University graduates from all degree disciplines demonstrate the academic capability to succeed within our profession. They also have had the opportunity whilst at university to develop their communication and team-working skills, amongst others, through the wealth of activities and opportunities that the University and the collegiate system provides its students. This allows PwC to benefit from having students who help meet the demands of our ever-changing business environment.Andrew Bargery, Graduate and Schools Recruitment, North Region PricewaterhouseCoopers LLP
