Degree Apprenticeships

Degree apprenticeships provide an alternative route to traditional higher education. They combine full-time work with part-time university study.

As part of a Degree Apprenticeship, you’ll work four days with your employer and study one day on day-release and one evening per week.

During the first two years you will study mainly at the college for one day and one evening a week. In the last year of the Degree Apprenticeship, you’ll move location to Bangor University to study for one day per week to complete the BSc (Hons) qualification. You will graduate at the end with a degree from Bangor University.

These degree apprenticeships are fully-funded - meaning that you’ll gain valuable work experience and achieve an industry-relevant degree at no cost!
