Degree apprenticeships in allied health subjects
16th January 2020
What are degree apprenticeships?
Degree apprenticeships are a new type of programme offered by some universities. Students can achieve a full bachelor’s or master’s degree as part of their apprenticeship.
Degree apprenticeships combine working with studying part-time at a university. Apprentices are employed throughout the programme, and spend part of their time at university and the rest with their employer.
Currently, the scheme is only available in England and Wales, although applications may be made from all parts of the UK.
Degree apprenticeships are still quite new, so there are a limited number of vacancies. It’s anticipated that the number of vacancies will grow over the next year or two.
