Entry requirements

Entry requirements for Graduate Apprenticeships vary by course and institution.

Each vacancy advert tells you what qualifications you need to start the apprenticeship. Or you can contact the university for guidance on entry requirements.

How does it work?

You’ll learn in a real-world environment and earn a wage. You’ll study at university about 1 day a week. When you complete the apprenticeship you’ll have achieved an honours degree. 

How long will it take?

This is a Graduate Apprenticeship at SCQF Level 10 (Honours degree level) and will take up to 4 years to complete.

You might complete the apprenticeship in a shorter time. That’s because you might have prior learning or experience that can be taken into consideration. This means you don’t have to repeat some parts of the qualification.
