Degree apprenticeships

How to apply

Students laughing

How you apply for a degree apprenticeship will depend on whether you’re currently employed or not.

If you’re in full-time employment and would like to study a degree apprenticeship with your current employer, ask them to complete this form or call us on 023 9284 8599 so we can discuss with them how we can work together.

If you’re not employed full-time or not working for a company that can fund and support your degree apprenticeship, you'll need to apply for a degree apprenticeship with a company that offers them. You'll follow their standard recruitment process and we'll assess your academic suitability for the course.

Finding degree apprenticeship vacancies

We can contact you when there are degree apprenticeship vacancies available – make an enquiry to give us your details.

You can also search for degree apprenticeship vacancies through or UCAS.


To qualify for a degree apprenticeship you need to be employed and have lived in the EU for three years at the start of your apprenticeship. You must also have the right to work in the UK.

We'll check to make sure you're eligible before you start your degree apprenticeship and may ask for proof of your right to work in the UK.

Entry requirements

Although you won't apply for degree apprenticeships through UCAS, we use the UCAS Tariff point system to show entry requirements for most degree apprenticeship courses.

The entry requirements for our degree apprenticeships vary from one subject to another. Most of our courses require 112-120 UCAS Tariff points from three A levels (or equivalent), plus a minimum of two GCSEs at Grade C/4 (or equivalent) or above including English and Mathematics.

You can work out how many points are awarded to qualifications using the UCAS Tariff point calculator.

You'll need to provide evidence of your previous qualifications before you start your apprenticeship. If you don’t have this evidence, please let us know as soon as possible after you apply.

If you don’t meet the entry requirements

If you don’t have three A levels, we can take other qualifications into account, such as AS levels, on some courses.

If you don’t have two GCSEs at Grade C/4 (or equivalent) or above including English and Mathematics, you may be able to get these through our partner provider, Fareport Training during your degree apprenticeship.

To arrange this, we’ll share your name, email address and qualifications with Fareport after you apply. We’ll share your data securely and it won’t be used for anything else.
