Student Apprenticeships

What are degree apprenticeships?

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. 

This combination is a fantastic way to gain the experience and knowledge you'll need to find future work and succeed in a working environment as it provides you with two very important things - a higher education qualification and real experience.
