Software Engineering Apprenticeship Programme

Are you curious, enthusiastic, with a passion for technology?

About Software Engineering

The KPMG Software Engineering Degree Apprenticeship is a five-year apprenticeship programme that combines academic study with practical work experience. This apprenticeship offers you a valuable opportunity to gain professional work experience, study towards a degree and earn a salary – all at the same time. Based in London, you will join either our Financial Services Technology Delivery Centre, or our Solutions and Digital team, while you study for a BSc degree in Digital and Technology Solutions with Queen Mary University of London.

Degree Apprentices study alongside fulltime students combining campus-based (2 days per week) and work-based learning, and receive some additional support tailored to their specific needs e.g. through measures such as Skype sessions with Teaching Assistants, "online office hours" for key staff, and employability-linked support to help Degree Apprentices understand the links between their study and employment and implications for their personal and professional development.

For campus-based modules, strategies include lectures, lab and tutorial sessions, practical and library-based research, presentations and group work. For work-based modules, learning materials comparable to those for the equivalent campus-based module are provided, along with appropriate additional study guidance.

Either way, this is your chance to embark on an exciting future – and to achieve a highly-regarded degree.
