Creating together


Our Flying Start programme turns 20 this year!

Celebrating 20 years of the Business Accounting and Finance programme

Flying Start, in partnership with PwC

Please join us in celebrating alongside current students, alumni and staff, 20 years of the Flying Start programme. We are capturing the views and experiences of those who have been involved with the programme since its inception in 2002.


About the programme

Our partnership with PwC has allowed students on this programme to get the most out of their time with us. Our dedicated staff from both Newcastle University Business School and PwC have supported students throughout their studies. Students, including some of your peers, have developed their business skills, gained real experience through paid work placements and progress towards a professional accreditation as an ICAEW Chartered Accountant.
