Choosing the next step in your career path can be a challenge, often university is the default choice. Today a comparable and often more attractive alternative for those who prefer varied hands on learning style and excellent prospects for employment is an apprenticeship.

Apprenticeship
On-the-job training and mentorship at a company that wants to employ you for the long term.

Mix of classroom and hands-on learning.

Achieve relevant qualifications for you and the business.

No tuition fees or students loans neccessary.

Chance to earn while you learn. Apprentices can make £258 per week in their 1st year.
VS
University
Little to no on-the-job experience, must go through job hunt and recruitment process.

Almost exclusively classroom and test-based learning.

Often require additional tests and training to achieve job-specific qualifications.

The typical UK university graduate accrues £20-44,000 in student loans by the time they graduate and many are still paying them off decades later.
