As well as this, PwC have always been pro-immigration and international students and lobbied on the behalf of Tier 4 students to reintroduce the Post Study Work Visa and look at ways the Government can stop scapegoating non-EU students who have come here with a genuine desire to study and work in the UK.

Remember that PwC will only accept In-Country Visa applications:
