Graduate Apprenticeship

A Graduate Apprenticeship allows you to study for a university degree while in paid employment.

Why Study a Graduate Apprenticeship?

With a Graduate Apprenticeship you get the benefit to earn while you learn. You develop vital industry skills in a paid job whilst studying for a university degree. It is completely free to join and there's no upper age limit.

You spend most of your time learning on the job and what you do in work counts towards your degree.

You can either find a new Graduate Apprenticeship with a Scottish-based business or upskill in your current job. Entry requirements are based on academic grades, work experience or a combination of both.

If you like to “learn by doing” and put theory into practice, then a Graduate Apprenticeship is the ideal opportunity for you.
