University of Birmingham has opted into the TEF and received a Gold award.
The University of Birmingham and Vodafone have partnered to create a brand new degree apprenticeship programme. This level 6 degree apprenticeship means tuition fees are fully paid for by Vodafone, and students will also receive a monthly salary.
Technology impacts every one, every day and we are all experiencing a digital transformation on a global scale, our partnership with Vodafone will put you at the forefront of advancing technologies. Being part of this will enable you to study for a Computer Science degree whilst gaining invaluable experience in a global technology organisation.
Vodafone guarantee industry experience during your summer vacation after your first year, plus, a whole year during the 3rd year of your degree. You’ll then return to study the final year of your degree back at the University of Birmingham.
One of the best things about this degree apprenticeship is, you will be paid a competitive salary by Vodafone whilst studying and during your industry experience placements, and your tuition fees will be fully paid too!
Upon successful completion, Vodafone will guarantee you a job.
Applicants who meet the academic requirements for Computer Science degrees who are not offered an apprenticeship position will be made an offer of a place for our G400 BSc Computer Science programme.
