Apprenticeship study

An apprenticeship is an excellent way to study towards a degree, while earning a salary and gaining practical work experience. Apprenticeships are an exciting and recognised route for those that are looking to combine work and study; you will have the opportunity to progress in your chosen career path with support from industry-leading experts and academic specialists at university.

At Herts, we offer higher and degree apprenticeships, with learners achieving a foundation, bachelors or master’s degree. Programmes last between 3 and 6 years and the entry criteria varies by programme and employer, however you may need to have a minimum of GCSE English Language and Mathematics at grade four/C or above, or equivalent qualifications. Depending on the apprenticeship, you may also require other qualifications such as A-levels or BTECs.
