Level 6 apprenticeships are the second-highest level of apprenticeship available. This is a form of higher qualification that allows you to gain a full university degree during the course of your apprenticeship.
Also known as degree apprenticeships, Level 6 apprenticeships allow you to earn whilst you study for a full Bachelor’s degree – without having to go to university. Level 6 apprenticeships can cover many different areas of study.
There are a wide variety of these degree level apprenticeships, from marketing degree apprenticeships to tech degree apprenticeships. Here at Estio, we specialise in digital degree apprenticeships, and these are the Level 6 apprenticeships we have on offer:
Entry requirements for Level 6 apprenticeships will vary depending on the company you work for, the sector you are in, and the apprenticeship itself. However, for the most part you will need to have five GCSEs at A*-C (9-4), including both English and Maths. You’ll also need to have Level 3 qualifications, such as A Levels, NVQs, or a BTEC. You might find that many employers will set requirements similar to traditional university degrees, asking for UCAS points equivalent to three A Levels – alternatively, you can get onto a degree apprenticeship by completing advanced and higher apprenticeship qualifications.
A Level 6 apprenticeship is the equivalent to a Bachelor’s degree, and this is the qualification that will be achieved by the end of your studies. As such, Level 6 apprenticeships take longer to complete than other apprenticeships – between one and three years.

A degree apprenticeship is a type of higher qualification that allows you to gain a full university degree during the course of your apprenticeship.
Degree apprenticeships sit at Level 6 or Level 7 apprenticeships, with the latter offering the opportunity to complete a Master’s degree qualification. Level 6 degree apprenticeships offer the equivalent of a Bachelor’s degree.
A degree apprenticeship is technically a higher apprenticeship, as this term covers all education levels from 4 to 7. However, degree apprenticeships – particularly digital degree apprenticeships – are a much newer concept, and for this reason they are given a different term to help make job vacancies clearer for applicants.
