How does the Degree Apprenticeship work?
Apprentices are in full time employment whilst studying for the four-year degree so they are able to very quickly utilise their newly acquired knowledge and skills within the workplace for the benefit of patients and service users.
Modules can be delivered on set days throughout the year, with the remainder of the apprentices time spent putting their skills and knowledge into practice either in their employment area or alternative placement areas. These alternative placements enhance the apprentices’ knowledge and understanding of nursing care across a variety of acute and primary care settings in order to meet NMC requirements for registration.
Apprentices’ work will be assessed via a range of methods. Examples may include practical assessments, presentations, essays, reflections, reports, e-portfolios, examinations, and change management proposals.
The majority of teaching takes place from City Campus. Students have full access to university facilities throughout their studies.
How to Apply
Please note applications are submitted through the relevant employer, not directly from applicants.
Before starting an apprenticeship, applicants will be required to sign a “Commitment Statement” which details key information regarding the apprenticeship such as learning requirements, responsibilities of the apprentice, employer and university, assessments, delivery schedule, etc, some of which are detailed below. Further information on this, and general apprentice admissions requirements, may be sought from the Apprenticeships Team.

Information for Employers
Our BSc (Hons) Adult Nursing Degree Apprenticeship enables apprentices to develop the knowledge and professional competencies required by the Nursing and Midwifery Council while mastering the specialist knowledge needed to deliver high quality care in your workplace.
- Every apprenticeship must have an Apprenticeship Agreement. This is a contract of service between the apprentice and the employer, confirming the apprenticeship and the standard being undertaken. This will be supplemented by a ‘Statement of Commitment’ signed by the employer, provider, and apprentice, setting out the expectations, roles and responsibility of each party involved in the apprenticeship
- The apprentice must be already employed or specifically offered a position associated with the apprenticeship opportunity. In this case the employer will be responsible for the recruitment of Degree Apprentices. However, we can work with you to promote your opportunities via our website
- The employer pays Degree Apprentices at their normal rate whilst they are studying. Apprentices must be paid at least a minimum wage appropriate to their age and job role
- Apprentices require a mentor in the workplace who will oversee their learning and coordinate with the university
- Apprentices spend a minimum of 20% of their working hours completing study for the course
Organisations with a wage bill in excess of £3 million can fund the course fees using their Apprenticeship Levy.
If you are a non-levy paying organisation the government will co-fund your apprenticeship training by contributing 95% of the costs and you will pay the remaining 5% of costs.
