What are degree apprenticeships?
Degree apprenticeships combine on-the-job experience with a full degree-level qualification. This style of university-level study means you gain a full honours degree, earn a wage, and gain valuable work-experience at the same time. This is an ideal route if you are a school leaver looking for an alternative to a full-time university course, or if you're an existing employee seeking to benefit from this higher-level training, but not able to enrol in traditional study.
One big difference between a degree apprenticeship and a traditional degree course, is that students do not pay any course fees. Course fees are paid by your employer with a large contribution from the government.
For the first time students have the opportunity to obtain a full honours degree alongside gaining valuable, industry-specific work experience while earning a salary.
