Degree Apprenticeships

With a degree apprenticeship, you can gain a level 6 (bachelors) or level 7 (masters) qualification while in paid employment.

Apprentices train on the job with their employer and complete their academic study with a local university through day or block release or distance learning. It can take between three and six years to complete a degree apprenticeship, depending on the programme.   

Opportunities are available in a number of sectors and more programmes are being developed. Which? University have produced a guide which includes a list of sectors and occupations where degree apprenticeships are available. 

Entry requirements

Entry requirements are set by the employer and can vary. For a level 6 degree apprenticeship, employers may look for English and Maths GCSEs and A Levels or an equivalent qualification at level 3.

For a level 7 degree apprenticeship, you will need to have completed an appropriate level 6 qualification. Check with training providers for individual entry requirements.

If you already hold a degree at level 6 or 7, you can apply for a degree apprenticeship at the same level, however your employer can only access funding if it is in a different subject.
