For apprentices

Degree Apprenticeship programmes are offered at both undergraduate level and postgraduate level study so are well suited to a broad variety of people; those looking for a suitable, paid alternative to a traditional degree programme as well as experienced professionals looking for continuous professional development (CPD). 

What is a degree apprenticeship?

A degree apprenticeship combines university study with a job, ensuring that you develop the knowledge, skills and behaviours required for a specific occupation.  Apprenticeship standards are developed by employers to identify their needs and academic programmes are then aligned to these.

It focuses on applied work-based learning to ensure that the skills and knowledge gained will be valued by employers as well as academic study to gain a full degree, either at gradute or postgraduate level. 

Apprenticeships can be both integrated (where the End Point Assessment is assessed by the University / training provider) or non-integrated (where the End Point Assessment is assessed by an independent, external training provider).
