“I started the degree apprenticeship because I wanted to earn money while I was learning valuable skills and working for a business that’s well established in their industry.
“It's allowed me to work with loads of different people in a professional environment as well as opening doors in other industries I might be interested in.
“I’d say if you’re considering doing a degree apprenticeship with Middlesex, just go for it. It’s a great way to kick-start your career in a fascinating environment.”
“Having tried a traditional degree I was quite uncertain about the job prospects I would have after graduating, so this degree apprenticeship is a better fit for me as I’m already earning a good salary as well as gaining tons of experience.
“I’m not sure what I want to do next yet, but I’ve already got my foot in the door at a big corporate company and have gained experience in several different sectors so I’m excited about what the future holds.”
We introduced the first business degree over 50 years ago. Since then we've worked with businesses to develop their staff including:
We've been associated with the Metropolitan Police over several decades and developed postgraduate programmes for senior officers.
We've partners with over 500 schools and colleges in most London boroughs, Hertfordshire, Essex, Buckinghamshire and Bedfordshire.
We've built excellent relationships with local authorities, voluntary and independent organisations across London.
We've got a strong reputation among our partner Trusts in London and develop our courses with the Nursing and Midwifery Council.
There was a time when I would never have considered being a project manager, but I'm not far behind that now.
“The degree apprenticeship is perfect for me because it suits my job role, it doesn’t take me away from the site that I’m managing. It also allows me to balance work with my family life.
“It's definitely a better choice for me than going down the traditional degree route because I'm based on site rather than at the university. My tutor travels to us in the workplace, and the facilities at the uni are still open to us whenever we need to study.
“Once I finish the degree apprenticeship I’ll then be a project manager and I’ll have all the knowledge and experience I need to do the job.”
