As National Apprenticeship Week begins, QA Education works with teen magazine Future Mag to find out about the new degree apprenticeships and how you go about getting one...

Degree apprenticeships – what are they and how can you get one?

On paper they make perfect sense. Degree apprenticeships are just that – a university degree and apprenticeship rolled into one – most are level 6 (bachelor’s) with a few leading to 7 (master’s).

Degree apprenticeships offer students the chance to work, study and earn at the same time in subjects from biomedical engineering to digital marketing. QA Education worked with teen magazine Future Mag to find out about these new apprenticeships and how you go about getting one.

Degree apprenticeships are new, uptake is still low and employers and universities are wary of red tape involved. But the good news is numbers are rising, and there are 27 new schemes launching in September 2018, which should – if all goes to plan - create thousands of new opportunities.
