There are have 5 spaces available on a fully funded degree apprenticeship programme starting in September:
They currently have spaces on the following programmes:
- BSc Applied Data Science
- BSc Applied Software Engineering
- BSc Applied Cyber Security
Further information regarding the offering is below:
- Who is the funding for?
The funding can be used for both new apprentices coming into the business or existing staff who are looking to upskill to achieve a degree. Some may have already studied related qualifications at a lower level such as a Level 4 apprenticeship or a HNC/HND. Previous qualifications could be used to enter the degree at a later stage meaning their time spent studying at the University is shorter.
- How much funding is available?
The Government will pay a contribution of up to £27,000 per employee. This is £9000 a year over 3 years which is the equivalent to the full time tuition fee for University students. This does not have to be replayed should employees not complete the course.
- How long does the course last?
The courses each last 3 years for anyone who enters with no previous University qualifications. For those with pre-standing qualifications they may be able to enter at a later stage via the recognition of prior learning which would shorten the course duration.
- What are the attendance requirements?
Apprentices will be required to attend University 1 day per week during term time at our Llandaff campus.
