Apprenticeships & Degree Apprenticeships

A Degree Apprenticeship is a job combined with a university degree. You’ll spend the majority of your time working with your employer and 20% of your time studying towards your degree. You’ll get paid, your tuition fees will be covered by your employer and the government, so no student loans and great career prospects. At the end of it, you’ll get an undergraduate degree qualification as you would with a full-time degree.

If you don’t want to study at degree level, you can still do an apprenticeship to train for a particular job or career after leaving college. An intermediate or advanced apprenticeship is a real job where you learn, gain experience and get paid. You’re an employee with a contract of employment and holiday leave. By the end of an apprenticeship, you'll have the right skills and knowledge needed for your chosen career. Find out about apprenticeships at all levels in this section.
