A level 6 degree is worth/weighted the same as a degree awarded by a university but are they valued the same? Do employers care which you have? A University degree has ratings like a first or 2:1, how do they know how well you did with a level 6 degree. (Asking because I am applying to Apprenticeships and want to know if I'm better off at uni)

You still get graded when you complete a degree apprenticeship. You’ll be able to make employers aware of your grade that you achieved once you’ve finished the degree.

Degree apprenticeship academic study is typically a Bachelors with honours like any other accredited full time degree.. with the same grading (1:1, 2:1, 2.2)

You’re also now graded on your work based competence at fail/pass/distinction. This typically involves a report, portfolio, and a presentation to an external assessor at the end of your apprenticeship. This is arguably more important, a degree doesn’t mean you can do the job, whereas a distinction in a L6 apprenticeship shows you know what you’re doing.

They’re quite adamant on eliminating the old NVQ stigma that it informally stood for Not Very Qualified, so they’re very harsh in judgement for the new EPA format. I.e. if you’re not good at your job with evidence to back it up, don’t expect a distinction.
