Degeee Apprenticeships

Working in partnership with you, we can tailor courses that meet your business needs.  Our diverse portfolio of programmes, from science and engineering through to business and law, means that we have the expertise to meet your requirements. The University of Birmingham has been producing high quality graduates for over a century and we have a wealth of experience in partnering with business and industry to find solutions to real world issues.

Degree Apprenticeships provide an opportunity to support the diversification of your workforce, and engage students from backgrounds who may not be attracted by more traditional forms of study. At the University of Birmingham we are proud of the work we do to widen participation in Higher Education, and to support social mobility in the professions. Our Access to Birmingham (A2B) Scheme is one of the biggest of its kind, and our activities engage thousands of young people throughout their secondary education.  We would be pleased to work with you to ensure that students from a wide range of diverse communities are able to access the new opportunities which Degree Apprenticeships bring.

If your business pays the apprenticeship levy you may be able to utilise this for degree or postgraduate apprenticeships, for new and existing employees.

Our first degree apprenticeship sees a collaboration between the University’s School of Computer Science and PwC to deliver a four-year BSc Computer Science with Digital Technology partnership programme. Starting in 2018, the programme will initially see 40 students a year combining university life with practical work-based technology projects at PwC, Birmingham.
