Degree apprentices

As a degree apprentice, your time with us may look a little different to that of our campus-based students. But you can still make the most of your university experience, as we have plenty of resources and support for you to access - whether you're on campus or working remotely. 

Here's everything you need to know to get started at the university on a degree apprentice course.


Activate your IT account

Check your personal email inbox three weeks before you are due to start your course. You will receive an email containing your student ID – this is what you'll need to activate your IT account.

Start your IT induction and check what equipment you need to get started on your course.

Can't find an email from us? Contact degree-apprenticeships@nottingham.ac.uk



Register online with the university

After you've activated your IT account, you will receive an email to your university account asking you to register online. You must use your new university username and password to complete registration.

We strongly encourage you to complete your registration as early as possible, as failure to do so will limit your access to programme materials, undertake assessments as well as progressing on your programme.


Apply for your university card

Once you've activated your IT account you will receive an email to your university email address asking you to upload a photo for your university card. As an apprentice learner you should still complete this step, as this will give you access to our library system including online materials.

Please note that you will not be sent a university card directly but your programme team will coordinate how you receive your card.  If you have any questions please contact degree-apprenticeships@nottingham.ac.uk


Explore Moodle

Log in to Moodle with your university username and password and start exploring your school/department pages.

You'll find lots of information and resources to help you prepare for your course, but please allow for up to three days after you have registered for your mandatory modules to appear.


View your academic timetable

You will be able to view your academic timetable online closer to your course start date. If you have any questions please contact: degree-apprenticeships@nottingham.ac.uk


Download the MyNottingham app

If you have a smart phone, make sure you download the MyNottingham app for quick access to emails, maps and academic timetables.


Get to know our Digital Technology Services

From wifi access to storage solutions to digital security and printing on campus, Digital Technology Services are here to help you with all of your digital needs. Our online Smart Bar will be able to help you with any troubleshooting questions you may have.
