In partnership with Barclays and, fully funded by Skills Development Scotland, the University of Glasgow are offering Graduate Level Apprenticeships leading to Software Engineering BSc.
Apprentices are some of the brightest minds in our impressively talented team. You’ll be working alongside industry experts who are behind major leaps in FinTech – brilliant minds who are always ready to support you and share their extensive knowledge.
Of course, you’ll also be following a learning programme that’s as trail-blazing as our technology. There’ll be on-the-job training where you’ll learn through valuable hands-on experience. And you’ll have the chance to gain a recognised Apprenticeship Degree Qualification – fully-funded by us. That means you could earn an Apprenticeship qualification and also earn a salary. Don’t forget you’ve got wide-ranging support from a line manager, career coach and a technical buddy, as well as a network of peers. Wherever you’re based, you’ll find the spirit of teamwork and a highly collaborative community, one that’s fizzing with new ideas and full of disruptive thinking.
Each candidate will apply for the Technology Apprenticeship Programme and will be made aware of the technology department they are placed into, once they have joined the business.
Apprenticeship purpose and responsibilities may vary dependent on the role they have been allocated. Apprentices follow a clear development route over the 4 year Apprenticeship programme during which time they will develop skills, knowledge and experience relevant to their specific role and will be able to learn more about organisation.

What qualification will I achieve? Software Engineering BSc
The University of Glasgow Graduate Apprenticeship programme combines the theoretical Computing Science that the traditional Software Engineering degree covers with bespoke work-based learning courses and experience. It has been developed by the pioneering Centre for Computing Science Education through extensive consultation with employers to ensure that it meets the needs of industry.
The university campus-based teaching for the programme is weighted towards years one and two enabling apprentices to quickly build knowledge and skills to apply to the work place. Teaching is delivered in blocks between work place experience. Components covered include: skills and tools to pick up multiple languages; software development; testing fundamentals; algorithms; data storage; HCI; low level architecture and networking theory; data science; team-based working.
Years three and four consist of more time in the work place and provide the option to specialise in Cyber security, Data Science or Systems Engineering.
What qualification or qualities are required?
• For roles in Scotland, 4 Bs in your Highers (or equivalent), including maths or computing
• Interest in Technology
• Good communication skills
• Commitment to a 4 year development programme
