Degree Apprenticeships

Degree Apprenticeships

In 2015, Queen Mary University of London became one of the first Higher Education Institutions in the United Kingdom to deliver Degree Apprenticeships. We are currently the only London-based member of the prestigious Russell Group to have such an offering and consequently partner with a number of the worlds leading enterprises in order to meet their workforce plans and training needs.
