Digital and Technology Solutions, BSc Hons (Degree Apprenticeship)

Our digital and technology solutions degree apprenticeship develops the technology and business skills that students need to succeed as IT professionals.

Degree apprenticeships enable students to gain industry-relevant skills, with most learning based in the workplace. Employers lead staff development, with course fees subsidised by government funding.

Our degree apprenticeship in digital and technology solutions brings together academic learning and on-the-job training. Students get the skills to meet the needs of employers through training in technology solutions, problem solving and modelling. They also get an overview of business operations in the workplace.

Modules cover project management, systems thinking, data analytics and data security and adhere to the relevant professional standards.

About the course team

Welcome to our Degree Apprenticeship course. When you join us, you'll be taught by an experienced team whose expertise and knowledge closely reflects the modules of this course. The team includes senior academics, professional practitioners with industry experience, lab technicians, and external experts who provide guest lectures on some modules. Our PhD researchers also offer lab support, which our undergraduate students find very useful.

  • Engineer apprenticeship schemes are definitely the way to go because I get full pay for my work and my degree is subsidised, which means I graduate with no student loan like my friends.

How you will learn

This section helps you understand more about how you'll learn based on standard delivery of teaching and learning on campus.

We are looking forward to welcoming students to our campuses for 2021/22. In line with government guidance, we are committed to delivering as much of our teaching, learning and student activity as possible on campus for the 2021/22 academic year. Depending on the national situation, and government advice, the situation may change but we are confident we are ready to manage any changes quickly and safely. Find out more about how we are keeping our campuses safe.

Teaching

In a typical week learning takes place through a combination of:

  • Timetabled learning
  • Independent study

You can view more information about how each module is taught within our 'What you will study' section.

Seminars and workshops enable you to discuss and develop your understanding of topics covered in lectures in smaller groups. You will also be able to meet your personal tutor. Timetabled learning may fall between 9am and 9pm depending on your elective courses and tutorials.

Class sizes

A common first year across Engineering programmes results in large lecture groups of 100+ students. However, in order to enhance your learning experience, practical class sizes typically vary from 5-30 students depending on the module. Similarly, tutorials operate in the same way as practical sessions with class sizes varying according to the nature of the module being studied.

Independent learning

As an apprentice, you spend the majority of your time in the workplace, gaining hands-on knowledge of the organisation and contributing to the effective running of the laboratory. Apprentices must allocate 20% of their time for learning outside the job, including self-study and attending university.

Apprentices are expected to work outside of their university contact hours to complete any additional reading, homework and tutorial preparation, and to work on their final assessment report for each module.

Overall workload

Each module you study towards this degree is worth 15 or 30 credits. These represent around 150 or 300 study hours respectively. If you receive 100 contact hours for a 30-credit module, you should expect to commit 200 hours to independent study to complete it successfully.

Assessment

**Students are assessed through a combination of assessment methods depending on the modules chosen.

You can view how each module is assessed within our 'What you will study' section.

Each course has formal assessments which count towards your grade. Some courses may also include 'practice' assignments, which help you monitor progress and do not count towards your final grade.

Students are assessed through a combination of course work, exams and practical assessment where relevant. You can view how each module is assessed within our 'What you will study' section. .

Feedback summary

University policy is to give feedback on assignments within 15 working days of the coursework submission date. Examination results will be available within 28 days.

Dates and timetables

The academic year runs from September to June.

Full teaching timetables are not usually available until term has started. For any queries, please call 020 8331 9000.

Fees and funding

The course fees are shared between government and employers. Visit our degree apprenticeships pages to find out how the cost of your course is met.

Accommodation costs

Funding your study

There is a range of financial support options available to support your studies, including the Aspire@Greenwich award for study resources that many full-time students will receive. EU students may be eligible for a bursary to support their study. View our EU bursary to find out more.

Discover more about grants, student loans, bursaries and scholarships. We also provide advice and support on budgeting, money management and financial hardship.

Financial support

Other costs

The cost of the apprenticeship can be paid by one of two methods:

The apprenticeship levy

The employer must pay into the apprenticeship levy to be eligible for this form of payment.

Government sponsored

If the employer is classed as an SME (small/medium-sized enterprise), you are eligible for government sponsorship for up to 90% of the cost of the course. The employer has to pay the remaining 10%.

The cost of the apprenticeship is the number of credits the student undertakes plus the cost of the End Point Assessment.

Please contact apprenticeships@greenwich.ac.uk for a bespoke cost as it varies from course to course.

Careers and placements

What sort of careers do graduates pursue?

This course is a popular choice for furthering your career in your workplace.

Do you provide employability services?

It is expected that apprentices will already be in employment relating to your chosen discipline.

Support and advice

Academic skills and study support

On your first day, apprentices are allocated an Academic Mentor, who remains your first point of contact for the duration of your studies. The Academic Mentor plays a crucial role in helping apprentices feel a sense of belonging, and in guiding and supporting your journey.

The Academic Mentor is also available as a contact for employers, whether for queries or concerns, or to find out how their apprentices are progressing. Academic Mentors visit you and the employer at the workplace regularly, though it can also be arranged as a video/conference call.
