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 developing our degree apprenticeship programmes, including the Level 7 senior leader for hospitality, tourism and events, and the Chartered Manager Degree Apprenticeship.

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
