Degree apprenticeships are available at level 6. They combine work with study and include a work-based, academic or combined qualification or a professional qualification relevant to the industry. Levels 4 and 5 are equivalent to a Higher Education Certificate/ Diploma or a foundation degree, level 6 is equivalent to a Bachelor’s degree.
Degree apprenticeships are the equivalent to a bachelor’s degree qualification. They’re very competitive and to be considered for one of these apprenticeships, you should currently hold A Level/Scottish Highers/BTEC/NVQ 3/IB.
Degree apprenticeship entry requirements depend on the employer or company.
As degree apprenticeships are the equivalent of a bachelor’s degree, you’ll usually need at least five A-C or 9-4 grade GCSEs or passes at N5, as well as three A-levels or Scottish Advanced Highers / BTECs / NVQs / IBs in a specified grade range or a lower apprenticeship qualification, on top of at least five A-C or 9-4 GCSE grades.
You can apply for apprenticeships at any time of the year – it all depends when an employer has a vacancy. You’ll be able to check the specific entry requirements of your chosen apprenticeship once the position opens.
