A Degree Apprenticeship is an alternative pathway into work-based learning. As a Degree Apprentice you can earn your degree alongside practical skills developed in the workplace.

Get the best of both worlds

If you’re looking to gain a professional qualification and work experience in line with your career aspirations, a Degree Apprenticeship makes sense. By taking this route, you’ll develop practical skills through on-the-job training, earn a wage and graduate without paying tuition fees. As you’ll be spending 80% of your time at work and 20% studying, you'll benefit from learning sector-based skills while accessing higher level knowledge directly related to your career.
