Degree apprenticeships - guide for apprentices

Money and finance

Tuition fees and living costs

Importantly, degree apprentices don't pay tuition fees. These will be covered by your employer.

But you cannot take out a student loan, so you will need to cover your own living costs, including housing, travel, and materials. 


Degree apprentices earn a wage, which must be at least the national minimum wage for apprentices. Many employers pay more.

Some positions will be advertised as a 'competitive salary', which may mean the salary is in line with similar jobs in that industry, or that the salary will depend on your skills and experience.
