Introducing Apprenticeships at the University of Suffolk

The University of Suffolk is working with a range of employers in the development and delivery of Apprenticeships.

Apprenticeships provide the opportunity for students to combine work and study - applying their academic studies to their job role, organisation and industry in order to become academically confident and skilled employees. Higher and Degree Apprenticeships can take one to five years to complete. Apprentices will spend at least 20% of their contracted hours of employment in off-the-job training, which could be a combination of studies at the University and training offered by the employer. For more information about off-the-job training, please click here.

Some statistics from GOV.UK:

  • Higher apprentices could earn £150,000 more on average over their lifetime
  • Over 90% of apprentices go into work or further training. 
  • In 2017/18 there were 10,880 apprenticeship starts at levels 6 and 7.
  • 87 per cent of higher (Level 4 plus) apprentices were satisfied with their apprenticeship.
