Our apprentices in action
At the University of Exeter we have a variety of degree apprenticeships programmes on offer. We are proud to have over 1,300 apprentices working in a range of sectors such as business, engineering, digital and healthcare.
Many of our apprentices have gone on to win awards for the outstanding impact they have on their sector including the 2019 IT Apprentice of the Year (the British Computer Society (BCS) IT Industry Awards).
Want to know what it’s really like studying a degree apprenticeship with us? Our apprentices share their experiences below.
We take part in National Apprenticeship Week, and other social media activities; our apprentices do takeovers of the University of Exeter Instagram account, write case studies, create videos and participate in events. We like to celebrate our fantastic apprentices and employer partnerships on our Twitter and LinkedIn feeds.
