Graduate Apprenticeships at RGU were introduced in 2017 as a way to combine both study and work where full-time employees can get fully-funded structured training with a bachelor’s degree at the end of it.


Developed by Skills Development Scotland, the programme started off with two courses - one for IT Management and Software Development. However, these courses have gone into other industries such as construction, engineering and business management.


It allows full-time employees to continue work but gain a degree, adding valuable skills which are often a great asset, not only to that individual but also to their employer.

 

The degrees are offered on a blended attendance basis where employers can use the online virtual learning environment to develop their skills with supporting days to RGU where they can exchange their ideas with other students and tutors.


These degrees specifically bridge the gap between theory and practice where they can solve real work problems through the integration of their degree.


The university continues to grow its graduate apprenticeships, just recently, RGU, in collaboration with the Association of Chartered Certified Accountants (ACCA) and the Institute of Chartered Accountants of Scotland (ICAS), began offering a brand new graduate apprenticeship in accountancy with 40 places available. This will allow upcoming accountants to gain their degree at the end whilst in addition gaining a fully qualified membership to either ACCA or ICAS.
