Students with devices on knees

The Graduate Apprenticeship scheme provides flexible, work-based learning and is open to existing employees and new recruits. Apprentices continue to work for their organisation but are required to spend an agreed amount of time each week on the Heriot-Watt campus in Edinburgh.

At Heriot-Watt we are known for our industry-focused education and for 2019 entry, we have 205 fully funded places across our graduate apprenticeships: 

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

How is the programme delivered?

Study includes standard classroom sessions with other apprentices taught by our leading academics and industry experts, as well as via online learning modules, directed learning and work-based projects.

We work with employers to ensure the learning experience of apprentices develops them into the graduates industry needs. We do this through initial programme design and regular update meetings to ensure that apprentices meet all of the required outcomes over the four-year programme.

We will help devise projects and identify desired outcomes for the mutal benefit of the individual and business, while meeting the outcomes of the apprenticeship framework.

Each apprentice has a dedicated academic supervisor and we arrange regular supervisiory meetings, either on-site or via conference call on Skype.
