Degree Apprenticeship in Digital and Technology
Help local and global businesses to succeed with your tech-savvy assurance and advice whilst studying for a BSc.
We operate an open access policy, meaning we don’t screen out applications on your academic performance alone. You will, however, need a minimum of grade 4/C GCSE (or equivalent) in English Language and Maths, and to have completed three A-levels/Five Highers (or equivalent) by the time the programme starts.
We welcome applications from all academic backgrounds and are looking for individuals who will succeed at EY in the desired role and future qualifications, therefore throughout our recruitment process your academic performance will be considered against your online assessment scores to determine your suitability for an EY role. We are also proud to partner with RARE recruitment, so that your application can be processed in the context of your socio-economic background. This allows us to give you the maximum credit for your achievements, assessing whether you have overachieved in light of your personal circumstances.
It is therefore important that you provide us with your top three obtained or accurately predicted A-Levels (or equivalent) as these will be verified and considered as part of the offer process should you be successful. Any drop in grades could jeopardise your offer of employment.

For this particular programme, the government has further additional requirements which you must meet at the time of commencing the apprenticeship.
- You should not be in receipt of government funding for further education, higher education or learning support
- You should have UK/EEA Nationality or Permanent Residency Status and have resided in the UK/EEA for at least 3 years prior to starting your apprenticeship.
- If you already hold a qualification, or have completed an apprenticeship, at the level of this apprenticeship or higher, the skills you will obtain through this apprenticeship must be substantially different to the learning and skills you have already obtained.
Please note that these eligibility criteria are defined by the UK government and may be subject to change from time to time.
