Dundee University has been selected to provide 110 graduate apprenticeships as part of a major collaboration with Skills Development Scotland.
The places are to be funded by the skills provider, with the university working in partnership with employers to provide qualifications in subjects covering business, civil and manufacturing engineering, IT and software.
It will allow graduate apprentices to combine their tuition while working at an organisation involved in their sector of study.
Graduate apprenticeships combine work-based learning and high quality education, allowing both students and employers to benefit.
The university will offer places in five courses from September – business management; engineering, design and manufacturing; civil engineering, IT management for business and IT software development.
