How our apprenticeships can benefit you
Earn while you learn
You’ll be employed and earn a wage, spending at least 20 per cent of your contracted work hours studying (online and face-to-face) and the rest working in a relevant job role.
No tuition fee costs for you
Your tuition fee is paid for by your employer. Any travel and accommodation costs to attend face-to-face learning are covered by your employer.
A combined teaching approach
You may study through a combination of virtual online study and face-to-face teaching. This in-person teaching is three to six days per year, based in Guildford, 34 minutes by train from London.
Three entry points a year
You can start an apprenticeship in either January, April/May and September (subject to minimum apprentice numbers).
Gain relevant work experience in a professional environment
You’ll be able to put your new skills into practice with on-the-job training in a role that is relevant to your apprenticeship.
Build up your professional network
During your apprenticeship you will be learning alongside other apprentices in similar jobs, from a range of different employers.
Gain a recognised qualification
Most apprenticeships include a recognised qualification from the University of Surrey such as a bachelors degree or a masters.
Improve your career prospects
"Set yourself up for the future – apprentices enjoy marked salary increases when they complete their training, and those completing a higher apprenticeship could see increased earnings of an estimated £150,000 over their lifetime.” - A guide to apprenticeships (PDF)
Gain professional accreditation
Many of our apprenticeships include professional accreditation as part of the end-point assessment.
