What makes this course different?

Digital and Technology Solutions apprenticeship degrees are based upon the Level 6 Digital and Technology Solutions Professional apprenticeship standard, approved by the Skills Funding Agency (SFA) and the Department of Business, Innovation and Skills (BIS).

The apprenticeship standard was developed by a group of major companies including Fujitsu, Hewlett Packard, IBM, BT, Ford, Network Rail and Lloyds Banking Group.

We offer a highly practical work based course that will prepare you for a career in computing.

We have Academy status with industry leaders Microsoft and CompTIA, so your UEL qualification has added credibility.

How you'll learn

An essential part of all apprenticeship degrees such as the BSc (Hons) Digital and Technology Solutions is learning on the job. 

Typically you will spend 80% of your time working and the remaining 20% studying at UEL but this course is delivered in such a way that enables you to directly apply and develop the skills and knowledge gained on campus in your working environment.

Learning on the job is however a two-way process and hence the experiences gained in the workplace can be related to the academic content of the degree, producing a synergistic approach to learning.

These labs support a wide range of subjects including networking, network security and digital forensics, operating systems, programming, database and web development.


We also make extensive use of Moodle, a virtual learning environment, to give you extra support and enable easy communication between students and staff.
