Apprenticeships are work-based training programmes which involve on-the-job training to develop relevant skills and a recognised qualification whilst earning. The University of Lincoln offers apprenticeships in Food Manufacturing at the National Centre for Food Manufacturing, Management in the Lincoln International Business School, and in various subjects at the University Academy.

Higher and Degree Apprenticeships

Higher and Degree Apprenticeships offer the opportunity to combine working with studying for a work-based academic or vocational high-level qualification. Degree apprenticeships are a new type of programme being developed in partnership by employers, universities, and professional bodies. They offer students the opportunity to achieve a full bachelor's as part of their apprenticeship.

Degree apprenticeships combine working with studying part-time at university. Apprentices are employed throughout the programme, spending a proportion of their time at university and the rest with their employer. This may be on a day-to-day basis or in blocks of time, depending on the programme and requirements of the employer.

There is no tuition fee for higher or degree apprenticeships, as these costs are paid for by the employer.
