    I'm got a conditional offer to Bournemouth University to study Television Production (and have been told I 99% have the grades to get in) however I am also considering an apprentice with my local BBC Radio Station.

    These are both things that I would love to do except I've been trying to weigh up the pros and cons for each pathway I could take.
    If I go to uni - I'll be studying the subject I want to and want a career in (I want to be a director) and I'll be able to get out of Cornwall and closer to where I want to live and work and there will be more job opportunities. I will also be able to have more independence and be able to do more for myself rather than relying on family.

    If I take the apprenticeship - I do not have the debt of uni, will be working for the BBC which is my dream company to work for, however I will be doing it in an area that I am less passionate about than the television production course and will be stuck at home for another year.

    Is there any advice anyone has to offer or what would you do in this situation?
Do you agree with the PM's proposal to cut tuition fees for some courses?
