What are Degree Apprenticeships?

Degree Apprenticeships are intended to deliver knowledge and skills appropriate to employer/sector need. The Degree Apprenticeship offers an alternative pathway from more traditional UK degree courses. By delivering a combination of university study together with training and development in the workplace, you will spend part of your time learning in the workplace and part of your time at university.

Study, earn and gain valuable experience

We offer two types of apprenticeship – the Higher Apprenticeship and the Degree Apprenticeship.

Higher Apprenticeship

As a Higher Apprentice, you’ll earn a living while gaining lots of practical skills and knowledge. Here’s what you’ll gain:

  • You’ll develop professional skills and knowledge through a work placement
  • You’ll make useful contacts within your industry
Degree Apprenticeship
