Is an Apprenticeship Higher Education

Higher apprenticeships are the first stages of higher education, such as a foundation degree, so an apprenticeship is higher education.

Higher apprenticeships are the next level up from intermediate apprenticeships and offer a variety of qualifications.

They range from the first year of an undergraduate degree (level 4) to postgraduate studies (level 7).

They have an ideal opportunity for you to pursue a professional degree after college or later in your career.

As a higher apprentice, you will spend up to 20% of your working week studying for a qualification at a college or training provider.

You will work on one of the above goals depending on the level of apprenticeship you want, but remember, an apprenticeship is higher education.
