What is a Degree Apprenticeship?

A Russell Group degree

We have a long history of working in partnership with business and were one of the first Russell Group universities to create customised degree apprenticeships. Not only will your employees gain an outstanding education they could gain a prestigious Russell Group degree or certificate.

Industry focussed

Our degree apprenticeships offer a unique partnership between talented and ambitious students and forward-thinking businesses, NHS organisations and healthcare providers. Today we partner with more than 200 employers to deliver courses that meet specific business, service, and workforce needs, ensuring that apprentices gain the necessary practical skills, knowledge, and experience to effect real change in their role.

Exceptional teaching

We provide an outstanding quality of lecturers, tutors and support staff to deliver content that complies with the Apprenticeship Standard and meets the needs of employers. Apprentices also benefit from access to the full range of virtual and on-campus services and support available to full time undergraduate and postgraduate students.

We identify a delivery model to best suit the needs of your business, including residential teaching, interactive online study and work-based learning.

Working in partnership

Our dedicated Programme Leads and Academic Mentors as well as a Relationship Manager ensure that apprentices are well supported and employers are actively involved in the development of their employees and benefit from opportunities to feed directly into programme improvements.

Shaping tomorrow’s talent

We currently have over 1,400 apprentices all delivering excellent outcomes not only for their professional development but within their organisation - delivering solutions that combine their industry experience with their new skills and knowledge.

Industry accreditation

Many of our degree apprenticeships are accredited with leading global accrediting bodies, meaning apprentices have the opportunity to gain a professional accreditation alongside their apprenticeship programme.
