Degree Apprenticeships

At the University of Exeter Business School, we’re leading a future-ready revolution in education.  Our brand of Degree Apprenticeships are where theory meets practice.  We connect top-tier academia with organisations, to collaborate and to develop their talent with bespoke pathways tailored to their needs to deliver Degree Apprenticeships in Partnership with Businesses in Leadership and Management, Financial Services, Project Management and Human Resources.

By building skills we attract the best talent – we’re not just growing teams we’re shaping the future of organisations.  Our partnerships with sector leaders create elevated opportunities for apprentice to thrive in their work-space and in a world-class university.

We partner with over 400 employers, including organisations such as Amazon, JP Morgan, and the NHS. Through our Degree Apprenticeships, the University and employers form a crucial alliance, collaborating to ensure a comprehensive academic experience, as well as addressing real skills deficits and delivering the knowledge and understanding that industry tells us are in demand.  Our programmes offer remarkable versatility for employers, and we offer both “open” Degree Apprenticeships and “closed” courses, which are designed to meet the specific needs of employers.

What is even more notable about our partnership approach is that Exeter’s apprentices become the third integral member, embarking on a Degree Apprenticeship journey that is collaborative and transformative.  Our University is dedicated to providing a sector-leading student experience, and we carry this through to our Degree Apprenticeships programmes by offering our students access to our world-class academics, our support networks, and our thriving student social environment so that, in addition to working with employer partners, Degree Apprenticeship students are able to play a full part in the life of our University’s community.

Of course, underpinning our partnerships is trust.  Our position as a prestigious Russell Group University with a world-class reputation for collaborative working reassures our employer partners of our high standards and academic excellence.  And our proven track record of substantial investment, skills delivery and management of Degree Apprenticeships at scale further solidifies this trust, so that our partnerships flourish, and we can deliver exceptional learning experiences and professional development for our learners, sending them out to have successful careers and to deliver on our goals of a greener, healthier, fairer world.
