What is a Graduate Apprenticeship?

100% of our Graduate Apprentices recommend the apprenticeship over a traditional degree.

Graduate Apprenticeships (GA) are an alternative route for school and college leavers to attaining a degree. Our Software Engineering degree programme a strong student experience through our 8-week learning blocks, in addition to work-based learning (and a salary!). We also flex on the standard UofG entry grades, opening it up to more students. This is a fantastic opportunity for students for whom Maths, Sciences and ICT related subjects are their strong point and area of interest.

“I have never looked back. It is one of the best decisions I have ever made. I am learning the theory and then seeing it in real life... I am actually a Software Developer.” Daniel, First Year.
