Fully funded, flexible, work-based learning, tailored to the needs of industry and individuals

The Graduate Apprenticeships (GAs) are a ground-breaking initiative, creating degree-qualified employees with the skills companies are looking for. Employers and universities collaborate to shape GAs around the needs of the industry. This approach guarantees that the content and study practices are easily implemented in, and relevant to, the workplace of the apprentice. GA is open to existing employees and new recruits.

For new or existing employees

The places are fully funded so no fees are paid for the whole degree programme, by employers or apprentices.

Choose from our GA programmes

Places are in high demand, and offered on a first come first served basis to qualified employees - so please contact us for information now.

GAs are done over the same timescale as a traditional degree but the majority of the activity and assessment is based on tasks carried out in the workplace as part of a job
