The University of Kent works with leading apprenticeship employers across the UK in a range of dynamic and growing professions and industries.
As an apprentice, you learn relevant skills at work and earn a wage. You spend a proportion of your working week (roughly 1 day per week) studying for a university qualification, either online or face to face.
"You can gain so much experience and actually do valuable work"
Hajra Bibi describes her time at GlaxoSmithKline
As apprenticeships are jobs, you apply directly to the employer for acceptance on their scheme. As part of your apprenticeship, you spend some of your time studying on one of Kent’s challenging and inspiring programmes.
With a higher or degree apprenticeship you can gain a qualification at Level 4 to Level 7. Your apprenticeship could last between one and four years, depending on the level and your employer.
More information is available on the government’s apprenticeship website.
