Degree apprenticeships

Now you don’t have to worry about university fees or choose between starting your career or studying towards a degree. You can enjoy the best of both worlds on our chartered manager degree apprenticeship programmes. You’ll swing into action in a real paid job while we pay you to attend University part-time. So you can get a head start in your career.

We’ve partnered with the University of Bradford and Sheffield Hallam University to create a unique, tailor-made programme that’s designed to unlock your potential. You can work, earn and learn while studying towards a degree and preparing for a management career with one of the UK's leading food manufacturers and retailers.


  • What does the programme involve?

    On the one hand you’ll take on a real role and enjoy getting paid while learning on-the-job and taking responsibility for people, projects and our operations. On the other hand you’ll be an undergraduate student, studying towards a degree in business and management. You’ll enjoy a great career and gain a degree while keeping your bank account in the black, not the red.

    Juggling full-time work and a degree course won’t be easy. But if you’re ambitious and hard working, it will be an experience you’ll never forget. You’ll gain full chartered membership of the CMI and the skills and experience you need to step into a management role after three years (although there will be a final exam in the fourth year) and go onto become one of our future leaders.

  • What will I study towards?

    A Chartered Manager Degree Apprenticeship at the University of Bradford or Sheffield Hallam University.

  • What do I need?
    • Resilience, determination and good leadership skills
    • The flexibility to meet the changing needs of our business.
  • What about UCAS points?

    To successfully apply for any of our degree apprenticeship programmes you'll need 104 UCAS Points.

    You get UCAS points when you pass a qualification like an A-level – the number of points you get depends on the grade you achieve.

  • Where will I study and how will I get there?

    For all our programmes, our degree apprentices will attend either the University of Bradford or Sheffield Hallam University, in weekly blocks throughout the year.

    Don't worry about travel and accommodation for this, as it will be paid for by Morrisons

  • How many Degree apprentices do you hire?

    We're looking to hire around 60 Degree apprentices for 2019.
