Degree Apprenticeships

 

Who's it for?
Degree apprenticeships are for students who are ready to start their careers and want to earn an industry recognised qualification along the way.

To make a success of our programmes, you’ll need to be ambitious, enthusiastic and have the academic skills needed to face the challenges of working whilst learning.

What does it look like?
As a degree apprentice, you’ll be spending 20% of your working week studying towards your qualification, either at the university, studying online or at your workplace. The rest of your week will be spent embedding your learning on the job, giving you the best of both worlds.
