Civil Engineering (BEng) Degree Apprenticeship
The Civil Engineering Degree Apprenticeship programme at the University of Exeter equips graduates with the educational underpinning for a career as a professional and technically competent civil engineer in the construction sector. The programme builds steadily over five years, during which we deliver a unique teaching style based on the pillars of analysis, design and sustainability.
• Contracting / Site Management, includes Level 4 Apprenticeship Construction Site Engineering Technician
Apprentices will be full-time employees of your business, gaining a Level 6 Apprenticeship and including University of Exeter degree over five years through:
- Four blocks of two weeks of residential teaching in Exeter each year
- Evidence gathering in the work place to show competence in the knowledge, skills and behaviours associated to being a civil engineer
- Twenty per cent of the apprentice’s time will be given over to study, known as off-the-job training.
Our dedicated partnerships team liaises closely with employers throughout the programme; we can assist you with recruiting, education support and administration.
Tuition fees for this five-year programme are £27,000. This includes £9,000 to complete Level 4 and £18,000 to complete Level 6.
Employers who pay the Apprenticeship Levy will pay these fees directly through that contribution.
Employers must pay their apprentices at least a salary consistent with national legislation and cover the costs of any travel and accommodation required to attend any face-to-face teaching.
