What is a Degree Apprenticeship?

The Degree Apprenticeship programme was introduced by the UK Government in 2015.

A Degree Apprenticeship combines full-time paid work and part-time university study, allowing students to gain a full Bachelors or Master's Degree while gaining practical work experience and valuable on-the-job training.

These qualifications bring together the best of higher education and vocational training and are funded by your employer and the Government. Depending on the course level you choose, Degree Apprenticeships can take between 3 to 6 years to complete.
