Information for Learners

To apply for a Degree Apprenticeship, you need to be: 

•    16 or older, 
•    resident in England,
•    not in full-time education.

If you are already employed, talk to your employer about Degree Apprenticeship opportunities.   

If you are a school or college leaver looking for a degree apprenticeship you can: 

•    Contact employers in the careers sector you are interested in and apply for vacancies, 
•    Apply through UCAS. 

When applying for a degree apprenticeship you will need to: 

•    Apply for the job: each employer will have their own application process, but it would typically involve a covering letter and CV, and you may be invited to attend an assessment centre and/or interview
•    Complete your University application: Once you’ve signed a contract with your employer, you will need to fill in the University application form and enrol on the course. This would normally happen a couple of months before the programme starts
