Degree Apprenticeships

What are degree apprenticeships?

Degree apprenticeships are currently available in Wales for people who are looking to start careers in IT, engineering or advanced manufacturing. Providing the opportunity to combine working with part-time study at university, the apprenticeships run for the duration of the degree course with apprentices spending part of their time at university and the rest with their employer.


How do they work?

Just like traditional apprentices, degree apprentices work alongside experienced employees to gain practical skills and experience while receiving external training. This means that degree apprentices finish their course with the skills they need to succeed at work, as well as the higher level knowledge that comes with a degree qualification. The employer covers the cost of their wages and Welsh Government offers support with university tuition fees.


What are the benefits for employers?

Degree apprenticeships are flexible – they can be designed around the needs of the employer and can help to fill skills gaps, scout new talent, reduce recruitment costs, remain competitive and assist with business growth. Business of any size in Wales can take on degree apprentices so register your interest now to find out more.


Who can apply?

Anyone in Wales who meets the university entry requirements for the degree apprenticeship. For more information on applying for a degree apprenticeship contact us at Careers Wales or contact the universities directly.
