Degree apprenticeships are offered by universities, the standards get developed by universities, the employers and professional bodies working together. Degree apprenticeships are the combination of working and studying part time in a university.
Degree Apprentices can take between three to six years to achieve depending on the course and level. At this moment in time the programme is only available in England and Wales but you can apply from everywhere in the UK .
Degree Apprenticeships are a recent occurrence so the number of vacancies are quite limited but its thought that the number will rise in the next year or two.
