Degree apprenticeships

An apprenticeship is a job that combines on-the-job training with a relevant course of study. Degree apprenticeships are a great way for you to train their staff (both new and existing) in the skills they need.

As a world-class research institution, we have invested in a blended delivery model so that apprentices will learn via a combination of virtual and face-to-face learning. This means that the employers and apprentices through the country can benefit from our apprenticeships.


We are currently seeking approval to join the Register of Apprenticeship Training Providers. During this time we are developing our degree apprenticeship programmes, including the Level 7 senior leader for hospitality, tourism and events, and will deliver the Chartered Manager Degree Apprenticeship from May 2019 in conjunction with Qube Learning.

See our dedicated information for prospective apprentices.

    How it works

    There are three parts to every apprenticeship:

    1. A programme of study
      Apprentices must spend at least 20 per cent of their time in off-the-job training that is directly relevant to their apprenticeship (e.g. online learning and/ or attending lectures on campus)
    2. A full-time paid job
      On-the-job training helps an apprentice develop the skills for their chosen career, e.g. engineer, nurse, hotel manager
    3. ​​​​​​An assessment at the end of the course of study
      This is often with a professional body such as the Chartered Management Institute
