How to Apply


Our Higher and Degree apprenticeships are carefully designed in collaboration with employers to help them not only attract new talent but to also develop their existing workforce, thus enabling them to improve overall performance and productivity and fill any higher-level skill gaps. We work with employers to ensure that the most suitable apprenticeship standards are selected and that the training and skills offered best meet the needs of both the employer and employee (the apprentice), no matter what experience they may have.

We can help you to maximise the benefits of Higher and Degree apprenticeships in your organisation and ensure you are putting your Levy funds to the best use possible.

We will work with you to discuss your requirements and guide you through the application and funding process. Whether you are interested in applying for the current employees or new recruits, please contact the Apprenticeship Team on and we will be happy to help you.


All our apprenticeship courses are offered through an employer. Therefore, if you would like to study for any of our apprenticeship courses, then you would need to be put forward for an apprenticeship by an employer and would not be able to apply directly to the University for any of our apprenticeship courses.

Your employer will need to confirm to us that they are happy for the University of Northampton to deliver the apprenticeship programme to you.

Please ask your employer (typically a line manager or the HR/ Learning Development Team or similar) to contact us on and we would be happy to help.

If you are not employed, then you can search for suitable apprenticeship vacancies here: or alternatively make direct contact with one of your preferred employers to discuss opportunities.
