Information for students

If you're looking to gain a degree-level qualification while simultaneously earning and gaining experience in your chosen field, a higher or degree apprenticeship could be the ideal route.

Higher and degree apprenticeships combine practical on-the-job training with formal university study, enabling you to gain vital industry skills and knowledge while continuing your education. You'll be able to take the concepts and theories you learn at university into the workplace immediately, giving you a head-start in your career.

During your apprenticeship you'll be employed by the company you're learning with, meaning you'll be paid just like any other employee. The course fees will be paid by your employer and the government so you'll pay no fees and won't need a student loan.

To qualify for a higher or degree apprenticeship at Middlesex you'll need A-levels, vocational level 3 qualifications or an advanced apprenticeship. A higher or degree apprenticeship can take between one and four years to complete.

Some of the benefits to a higher and degree apprenticeship are:

  • You'll gain a degree-level qualification directly relevant to your industry
  • No student debt
  • Gain relevant work experience as you study
  • Earn while you learn
  • Workplace mentor
  • Increased career progression opportunities
  • Increased earning potential over a lifetime
  • Qualifications at degree and master's level
