Higher and Degree Apprenticeships are designed by industry to bring together Higher and vocational education. They assist in developing academic learning, as well as wider skills and the ability to do a specific job.

Our degree apprenticeships will enable you to study for a higher level qualification and gain professional recognition, while earning a full-time salary and gaining invaluable workplace experience. When you finish your apprenticeship, you will have professional networks in your industry, relevant and valuable work experience, a full degree level qualification and no tuition fees to repay, as the government and your employer pay for the fees. It is open to anyone over 18 and can be studied part-time.

You will have a number of taught sessions which are designed to allow you to:

  • discuss your personal and professional development
  • discuss and gain feedback about your work
  • ask questions about the projects you’re working on

We will also support you through our virtual learning environment, giving you access to all of the module learning material, as well providing a platform to discuss ideas, work or anything else with your tutors and fellow students. You’ll find lots of professional support on campus plus plenty of people to turn to if you need a helping hand.
