Studying while working
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 were 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 set in 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 still spend 20% of your time learning away from your normal working environment.
The Government's Office for Students website provides information and guidance about degree apprenticeships for students, potential apprentices and employers.
