Degree Apprenticeships

A degree apprenticeship gives you the opportunity to gain a paid-for degree while getting industry experience and earning a salary.

As an apprentice, you'll spend most of the time learning in the workplace, and then around 20% in the classroom.

Apprentices are taught via lectures and seminars in the classroom, e-learning and real-world, on-the-job training. UCW’s Higher Education Library Plus (HE.LP) team also deliver a series of sessions on degree-level research and academic writing to all first-year students.

Apprentices are also expected to learn through independent self-study, which involves working on individual and group projects, and undertaking research in preparation for coursework and exams.
