You will need to apply for a degree apprenticeship role or already be employed in a job in England with responsibilities aligned with the degree content. Please see the how to apply section below for more information.
Entry requirements are set by the hiring business and not Aston University so they vary between organisations. Apprentices are selected based on their applications, an interview and an assessment process which is tailored to your apprenticeship position.
You will need:
An honours degree in a related subject (or equivalent qualification)
At least Grade 4 or C GCSE Maths and English.
Candidates without a background in computing may also be suitable for the programme but would need to complete additional training agreed with Aston University and their employer prior to beginning this degree apprenticeship.
Employers may specify their own entry criteria that can exceed this.
You will also need to meet the government's eligibility criteria:
Have been a UK/EU/EAA resident for the past three years or more prior to starting the course.
Have left full time education when the apprenticeship you are applying for is due to start.
