Leicester-based academy Helicentre Aviation will be taking enrollments for a BSc (Hons) Professional Aviation Pilot Practice Degree/Higher Apprenticeship which will allow graduates to obtain the degree alongside their professional helicopter pilot’s license. The BSc will be open to UK, EU and international students, with UK and EU students benefiting from the UK government’s student loan and grant scheme if eligible.
The program is jointly validated with Middlesex University and has been developed by Helicentre Aviation and the Aviation Skills Partnership. It will also be available for existing trainees and qualified pilots, and has been developed to meet the requirements of both a degree and a higher apprenticeship. This innovative combination means that when a student is training independently or as an apprentice the requirements for both programs are met.
