What are Higher and Degree apprenticeships?

Higher and degree apprenticeships are a high-quality alternative to the traditional university degree.

You spend part of your time studying at Sheffield Hallam, and the rest working for one of our partner employers, earning a full-time wage and getting invaluable experience of the workplace. Some apprenticeships also include vocational qualifications such as an NVQ, or professional industry qualifications such as the British Institute of Facilities Management (BIFM) diploma.

Essentially, you get the best of both worlds – all the academic challenge of a highly regarded degree, alongside a full-time wage and your first step on the career ladder with a prestigious employer.

You will work with and make connections with people in your chosen industry who will help you achieve your career goals in the future. And at the end of the course, you will have 2–4 years' work experience, a degree-level qualification, and you won’t owe any tuition fees back.
