Degree Apprenticeships

Want to study at degree level while gaining on the job training and earning a salary? A Degree Apprenticeship is a new education route, just launched by the Government, bringing together the best of higher and vocational training. This new option enables university study and the invaluable on-the-job training typical of an Apprenticeship, without having to cover the cost of tuition.

What are they like?

As an apprentice, you are employed full-time and work a minimum of 30 hours per week. This gives you practical on-the-job industry experience. Alongside this you will study a Bachelors or Master’s degree at a partner university. You will graduate from your apprenticeship with academic knowledge and career-optimising practical skills in your industry. Apprenticeships give you practical on-the-job experience, the chance to gain applicable skills and knowledge about an industry, and a real chance to prove yourself to an employer.

How do they work?

The main focus of degree apprenticeships is to develop skills and knowledge specifically for a job and career. The fees from apprenticeships are subsidised by employers and the government whereby a wage is then paid to the individual undertaking the apprenticeship – meaning that doing a degree apprenticeship can leave you debt-free, as opposed to students studying traditional degrees which cost around £9,000 a year plus living expenses.

Can I do a degree apprenticeship?

Primarily, they are aimed at school leavers aged 18-19 as an alternative option to studying for an academic degree. It is now a great option for everyone looking for a fast track into a career of many types, not just the traditional engineering or manual trades route. Plus, everyone, but especially individuals from disadvantaged backgrounds, benefit from avoiding a traditional degree’s high tuition fees and are less likely to be put off by the student debt associated with the academic option.

What industries can I do a degree apprenticeship in?

Currently, they are available in many areas, and this number is expanding quickly since the apprenticeship levy has been implemented. Your current options include:

Aerospace Engineering Aerospace Software Development Automotive Engineeringt
Banking Relationship Manager Bespoke Tailoring Chartered Legal Executive
Chartered Manager Chartered Surveying Construction
Defence Systems Engineering Dental Technician Digital and Technology Solutions
Electronic Systems Engineering Healthcare Assistant Practitioner Laboratory Science
Licensed Conveyancer Nuclear Science Operations Manager
Outside Broadcasting Engineering Power Systems Product Design and Development
Solicitor Technical Support Engineering  

How much does it cost?

Doing a degree apprenticeship incurs no cost to the individual, just like other apprenticeships, there are no training costs or tuition fees.

FAQs

A degree apprenticeship is a combination of academic study at a university, or at a training provider in partnership with a university alongside on-the-job training. Most of your training and assessment will generally take place within your employers’ workplace.

Apprentices have to be employed for a minimum of 30 hours per week. They are a great way to recruit new staff to a business or to upskill existing staff. Apprentices must be legible to live and work in the UK. As for a normal degree, you will need the right number of UCAS points to be accepted onto your course, with A Levels, Level 3 or 4 Apprenticeship or equivalent counting towards that. Many apprenticeship routes can take young people from a more basic level all the way through to degree level.

The apprenticeship levy was introduced in April 2017 and affects every business in the UK with a pay bill over £3 million annually. The levy supports changes to apprenticeship funding in England and starts at 0.5%. Smaller businesses who don’t pay the levy can claim back 90% of the training costs, rising to 100% when employing 16-18 year olds.

Degree level apprenticeships allow people to develop and expand their existing skill set and knowledge to a higher level within their current workplace whilst acquiring on-the-job training. Other benefits include:

  • Achieving a full BA / BSc (Hons) degree whilst in work
  • Career progression within the business
  • Flexible delivery models supporting your work life balance
  • Support from both your employer and the University you study at
  • No cost to the apprentice

A degree apprenticeship lasts a minimum of one year and will typically take 3 years until fully completed. Apprentices will receive a full BSc or BA Honours degree.
