New degree apprenticeships are set to open the door to careers in everything from nursing to construction and food manufacturing, thanks to a multi-million pound fund.

Universities and colleges across England have been awarded a total of £4.5 million to develop new degree apprenticeships for students starting in September 2017.
Working in partnership with leading employers, the universities and colleges will offer 5,200 new opportunities for apprentices and their employers in preparation for the introduction of the apprenticeship levy in April 2017. Read more about Thousands of new degree apprenticeships to be launched.

Universities offering degree apprenticeships

The list of universities that currently offer degree apprenticeships is continually expanding, but the way that they are being set up is in partnership with specific employers. This means that the employers work with the universities to create a bespoke degree programme which leads to a degree but is tailored to meet the specific academic and vocational needs of that particular employer. In some cases the universities are working with consortia of smaller companies to set up a programme that will work across the group. Read more about Universities offering degree apprenticeships
