Graduate Apprenticeships

Work in full-time, paid employment whilst studying for your degree.

Growing a skilled Scottish workforce is a key government policy. Achieving graduate-level qualifications through the alternative route of an apprenticeship is a way to help achieve this.

Graduate Apprenticeships are alternative routes to an honours degree for school leavers, Foundation/Modern Apprentices, or experienced workers. Edinburgh Napier's Graduate Apprenticeship programmes are a partnership between the University, employer and apprentice, where the blend of work and learning enriches graduation outcomes.

The programmes are free to employers and apprentices because they are funded by the Apprenticeship Levy. Places are available to any organisation whether or not they are levy payers. 

We offer programmes in Computing, Engineering & the Built Environment and Business where apprentices will spend approximately 80% of their time at work and 20% at the University.  Apply now to be kept informed of upcoming opportunities or contact for more information.

The Graduate Apprenticeship stood out straight away. It was a massive opportunity for me. Everyone that I’ve spokento since getting the apprenticeship is really impressed by the whole thing.
