Are Level 7 apprenticeships suitable for graduates?

Level 7 apprenticeships are a great option if you’ve recently graduated from university. They’ll give you experience working with an employer, but will also allow you to continue to academically challenge yourself by working towards your apprenticeship Master’s.

Can I do a Level 7 apprenticeship?

Entry requirements will vary depending on the employer and training provider that you apply through. There are, however, some basic requirements that most masters apprenticeships will require. You’ll usually need to have a minimum of a Level 4 qualification, which could include a Level 4 or 5 apprenticeship, or a Level 6 apprenticeship, or equivalent industry qualification. However, you might also be able to do the apprenticeship if you have relevant experience, or if you are retraining.

Are Level 7 apprenticeships difficult?

A Level 7 apprenticeship is difficult. Not only will you be working toward one of the highest levels of qualification you can achieve in the UK, but you’ll be working full time, too. However, if you have been successful in an application, it means your employer believes in you and knows you are capable of the role – and you’ll receive certification for your Master’s apprenticeship once you’ve completed it.
