Our range of Higher and Degree Apprenticeships allow you to gain an academic qualification and degree whilst you work.
By mixing study time with learning a new job, you can embed yourself in an organisation, earn an apprenticeship wage while you study, and graduate without a student loan. Our Degree Apprenticeship courses have been developed with leading businesses across the North West and using government standards, so you’ll be able to gain in-demand skills and advance your career.
Higher and Degree Apprenticeships both allow you to study for a qualification while working with your sponsored business. However, Degree Apprenticeships are different because you graduate with a full degree - either an honours degree or a master’s degree - while a Higher Apprenticeship will grant you a professional qualification equal to a foundation degree.
