Degree Apprenticeships

Our Degree Apprenticeship programme combines traditional academic learning in a University environment with work-based projects that allow students to apply their newly acquired academic knowledge to their roles in their companies. This innovative programme allows the students to “earn and learn” - to remain in full-time employment whilst earning a BSc (Hons) degree that contextualises their academic learning in their work-place environment.

Courses are fully funded, with support from the Institute of Coding (IoC) in Wales and the Welsh Government through the Higher Education Funding Council for Wales (HEFCW). The IoC in Wales is a major partnership led by Swansea University, which is a part of the National Institute of Coding based in England. It was established to address the recognised digital skills gap in the workforce and create the next generation of digital specialists. Originally envisaged as a way to help rectify a ‘skills shortage’ in Computer Science within Wales, our Degree Apprenticeship Programme is proving incredibly popular, with Computer Science courses being offered (or in the process of being developed) in all Welsh Higher Education Institutions.
