Graduate Level Apprenticeships (GLAs) are undergraduate and postgraduate degree courses which promote an integrated approach to work and study.

Developed by Skills Development Scotland, in response to employer demands, GLAs: 

  • Address national skills shortages in key areas, such as digital technology
  • Allow employers to shape their workforce in line with business demands
  • Offer a high value, low cost option for employers to retain and upskill staff


Our GLAs

Shape the expertise of your workforce and develop the skills you need by enrolling existing employees or offering new recruits a place on our GLA programmes.

RGU has 15 fully funded places in each of two GLA courses. Each course starts in September 2017, with additional subjects in prospect for 2018.

  • BSc (Hons) IT Management for Business
