Get the information you need about applying for a degree apprenticeship

To join one of our degree apprenticeship programmes you need to be in employment and have the support of your employer. If you're already in employment, take a look at our employee information.

Step 1: Find a vacancy

To be offered a place on one of our degree apprenticeship programmes, you need to be employed and have your employer's approval. If you aren't currently working, the best way to join us is by searching for suitable apprenticeship opportunities. Here are two great places to start:

Step 2: Complete an application

When you find a vacancy that appeals to you, you'll need to make an application to the employer and not through UCAS or Aston University. Each employer has a different application process, so it is best to take a look through their recruitment information online to see what is expected of you.

The typical process will involve:

  • An online application form;
  • Aptitude testing;
  • A telephone or video interview;
  • An assessment centre or a face-to-face interview.

Step 3: Enrol as a student

If you are successful at every stage of your employer's recruitment process, they will pass on your details to Aston University. We'll invite you to complete and application form so we can begin the enrolment process. Once this has been completed, you'll be offered a place as a degree apprentice.
