Things to consider

  • Do you want a full-time student experience? You'll have a different experience to a full-time student. Firstly you'll be an employee based in the workplace.
  • Are you eligible? If you're over 16 and live in England then you may be eligible to do a Degree Apprenticeship. Citizens of EEA countries, or non-EEA citizens legally resident in the UK for at least the previous three years before the start of the apprenticeship (NOT for educational purposes), may also be eligible.
  • It's not the easy option. You'll need good time management skills to balance your work, study and any other commitments you may have.
  • Do you know what you want to do? Your Degree Apprenticeship will put you on the right track to a career in your chosen field. You need to have a clear idea of your goals and ambitions before we can help you achieve your potential.
