UCAS Unveils New Points Plan for Apprenticeships

by | 0 comments

Long-awaited plans to award UCAS points to apprenticeships have been revealed by the university admissions body. From this September, people completing level 3 apprenticeships could be awarded up to 112 UCAS points to apply to universities, depending on the length of their apprenticeship. However, the proposed tariff model would mean learners on apprenticeships lasting less than two years would not reach the typical minimum entry requirements for an undergraduate university course. The proposed UCAS tariff for apprenticeships uses the expected duration set out by IfATE to determine the number of points. Apprentices must pass their end point assessment to be able to use UCAS points on their university applications. Click here for more.
