The University of Exeter is to launch a pioneering Financial Services Apprenticeship scheme in collaboration with J.P. Morgan- the first of its kind and level offered by a Russell Group university.
As of October 2018, the University will be taking applications to the programme ahead of the start of the scheme in October 2019. Successful applicants will embark upon a Level 6 apprenticeship, ultimately emerging with a BSc (Hons) in Applied Finance from the University of Exeter after four years.
Paige: “We see this as a game-changer”.
The Executive Director and UK Early Years Careers Lead of J.P. Morgan, Phillip Paige, hailed the programme “a game-changer”. He added that it would allow the international firm “to give a diverse group of people the benefit of an Exeter University education” and “will help us attract even stronger candidates to our programmes”.
J.P. Morgan already offers several apprenticeships, including its four-year Technology Degree Apprenticeship, which will also be offered at the University of Exeter as of September 2019.
