Degree apprenticeships work like any other apprenticeship. You are employed for a nominal term to work under experts in the field to learn a trade and complete a qualification. The difference is the qualification is a university degree and the trade is a profession.

Employers can benefit through gaining access to a more diverse group of future graduates, and having the opportunity to help shape your apprentice’s development and job readiness.

Apprentices can benefit by being paid to learn, by seeing at first hand how practitioners operate, and by building their resumes and networks from day one.

Degree level apprenticeships are available across a range of occupations in three states.
