Fees and funding

Apprenticeships are not funded by apprentices themselves, meaning you leave with a University level qualification and £0 tuition fees.

How is an apprenticeship funded?

As an apprentice, you're not required to pay tuition fees to Nottingham Trent University – your employer will sponsor you instead. As of April 2017, there is allocated funding accessible for many UK employers, and depending on the size of the organisation, certain co-investment or full funding is also available from the government.

All this means apprentices are not entitled to student finance and do not acquire student debt. Instead, apprentices will earn a full-time wage from their employer alongside their learning.
