A degree apprenticeship offers you the opportunity to study whilst working to combine the skills acquired by both. As an apprentice you will complete a degree and relevant professional qualification whilst working for an employer who sponsors you to study.
Apprentices study subjects that are directly relevant to their jobs and will often be visited in the workplace so that professional competency can be assessed ‘on the job’. As part of the apprenticeship there will also be time allotted to attend university, college or a training provider.
Apprentices do not pay for the cost of tuition as this is met by the employer. Employers pay apprentices, which means you will not have to take out a student loan to complete a degree apprenticeship.
