Degree Apprentices


If you have joined as a degree apprentice, you may find that studying here is different than what you are used to. We are here to help you understand these differences and help you improve the specific academic and IT skills support you need to succeed with your apprenticeship and your chosen course.

Undertaking a degree apprenticeship is challenging and rewarding. Good academic skills will not only help you with your studies but also with your work on the job.  These are only some of the skills you'll develop at university which will also help you in the workplace:
