Undergraduate Apprenticeship

The application process for entry to our 2015 Sponsored Degree Programme will open on the 13th October 2014.

Our Undergraduate Apprenticeship is a three-year programme that combines vocational and academic training with industry based work at one of our UK sites. You will attend one of our partner universities to study for your BEng Honours Aerospace Engineering (Manufacturing) degree.

Airbus has led the way with this programme whereby participants also achieve a professional IEng level qualification.

Programme Structure

During the programme you will complete Higher Vocational Qualifications (NVQ Level 4 Engineering Leadership) and vocational experience working on-the-job as an engineer; an invaluable part of this apprenticeship not readily available at University. The first period is spent at college and the second and third are spent at Airbus and at University.
