On a degree apprenticeship programme you get work experience, study at university and gain professional accreditation at the same time. Your employer will cover the costs so there are no tuition fees. You can apply for a degree apprenticeship if you have A levels, a level 3 BTEC or if you are a non-graduate working in the field.
