Degree apprenticeship students

Learn and Earn

Earn a salary, get a degree, and pay no tuition fees

Would you like to earn a salary while you get a Bachelor's or Master's degree, without paying tuition fees?

Degree apprenticeships allow you to work as an employee while you study part time. They combine academic study from a traditional university degree with practical on-the-job experience and employment skills you need for a successful career.

Learn skills in high demand

Degree apprenticeships are developed between the Government, employers and universities, so you’ll learn skills that will be in high demand in the future. They're suitable for anyone over 18, whether you've just finished school or college, or you're already well into your career.

The Government and your employer pay your tuition fees, so you won’t need to take out a tuition fee loan.

Degree apprenticeships take 1–5 years to complete, depending on the course you take. You'll typically go to university 1 day a week for around 30 weeks every year. On the weeks you don't go to university, you'll spend a minimum of 6 hours per week studying outside of work.

The Government's Office for Students website provides further guidance on degree apprentices for students, potential apprentices and employers.

We provide degree apprenticeships with various types of employer, from large multinational organisations to small local companies.

Previous employers include the Royal Navy, Portsmouth City Council, Hampshire County Council, Blanchard Wells, Estee Lauder, Mace, Osborne, Apollo Fire, Neilcott Constructions, Pfizer and Hampshire Chamber of Commerce.

We regularly discuss new degree apprenticeships with employers. If you're interested in a role or subject not listed here, get in touch with us and we can let you know if other programmes are on the horizon.
