Hatfield’s University of Hertfordshire has scooped a £250k funding boost to develop new degree apprenticeships.
The investment was announced this week by the Higher Education Funding Council for England (HEFCE), which will work collaboratively with the uni to design 10 new degree apprenticeship programmes in 2018.
The award is part of a £4.8million injection being provided by HEFCE to universities and colleges nationwide to boost apprenticeship opportunities for students next September.
The university’s Julie Newlan said: “I am delighted that the university has been awarded this funding to develop our degree apprenticeship programme.
“Increasing the number and range of degree apprenticeships we offer will allow more people to access higher education opportunities and develop their careers.
