A guide to degree apprenticeships

Here at the University of Bolton there are a wide range of different degree apprenticeships offered to students. 

Degree apprenticeships are similar to higher apprenticeships but differ in that they provide an opportunity to gain a full bachelor's degree (Level 6), or master’s degree (Level 7).

Degree apprenticeships combine working with studying part-time at a university. Apprentices are employed throughout the programme, and spend part of their time at university and the rest with their employer. This can be on a day-to-day basis or in blocks of time, depending on the programme and requirements of the employer.

Degree apprenticeships are still quite new, so there are a limited number of vacancies. It’s anticipated that the number of vacancies will grow over the next year or two.

For more information on our apprenticeships, who to contact and what we have to offer, please see our apprenticeships page

You can also chat with our staff directly every Wednesday from 2 pm - 4 pm and periodically throughout the working week.

Alternatively, chat with our current students who will be able to share this information with you and any other course-related queries.

Or book onto one of our Open Days or Course Advice Days to find out more and speak with the team.
