Information for Aspiring Apprentices


A degree apprenticeship is a fantastic way of achieving professional qualification backed by a degree at the University of Cumbria. Studying whilst you work will ensure you don't pay tuition fees and allow you to earn a salary for the duration of your training.

You will need to be employed and have your employer’s support if you are interested in studying on one of our degree apprenticeship programmes.
