Apprenticeship Programmes: KPMG Software Engineering Degree Apprenticeship
The KPMG Software Engineering Degree Apprenticeship is a five-year apprenticeship programme that combines academic study with practical work experience. The 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.
How is the programme structured?
You will be studying towards a BSc (Hons) Digital & Technology Solutions degree over a five-year period, combining campus-based (2 days per week) and work-based learning. Degree Apprentices study alongside fulltime students, 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 the 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.
