Graduate Level Apprenticeships

Get a job, get paid and get a degree at the same time

With a Graduate Level Apprenticeship, you spend most of your time at work, learning on the job – and normally about a day a week at university.

So, what you learn goes right into practice. And the work you do goes towards your uni assignments.

  • Instead of thinking about how things might happen in the real world, you'll be putting theory into practice. You'll be solving problems on real projects
  • You’re part of the industry from day one, instead of joining after a degree
  • Everything you learn at work, and in the lecture hall, counts towards your qualification
  • You could study for a degree, or even a Masters
  • Employers help us design Graduate Level Apprenticeships. So you can be sure the qualification and skills you get at the end are what you actually need for work
