Degree apprenticeships are an alternative to traditional university study that are becoming increasingly popular amongst students. 

You will be placed into a working environment, gaining real world workplace experience and earning a salary, whilst simultaneously working towards a degree qualification upon successful completion of the apprenticeship.
