Earn while you learn with a degree apprenticeship

Higher and degree apprenticeships are designed and developed by employers, universities and professional bodies working in partnership, combining working whilst studying at Brunel. 

You can gain qualifications, learn professional skills, progress your career plus earn a wage.  

How do I apply for a degree apprenticeship?

Applying for an apprenticeship is slightly different to a UCAS application for university. Typically you will need to apply directly to an employer who is adverting higher and degree apprenticeship opportunities.  We are also on hand to support you though the application process, including CV support, interview tips and general information, advice and guidance.

Already employed?

Degree apprenticeships are a great way for people already in work to upskill and gain new qualifications. If one of our higher and degree apprenticeship programmes would support you in your job role, get in touch with us to find out more.  Often, there is a variety of funding options available to your employer to fund the cost of training.

Graduates moving onto apprenticeships

Graduates are able to apply for an apprenticeship as the next step in their career after gaining their degree, if this means acquiring substantive new skills. This ensures that an individual is not funded twice to do the same training.
You should contact us for advice on your eligibility based on your prior learning.

Graduates considering their next steps can find a range of useful information in the Graduate employment and skills guide from the Office for Students.
