    Hi,

    I'm in my first year of college doing my AS-Levels. I'm on track for straight A's this year and hopefully straight A*'s next year.

    I really don't want to go to university and so the only other option is an aporenticeship. I want to do something in law or mabye business, is there many available in this field?

    Hello!

    Good news! There are plenty of apprenticeships in business that may be of interest to you. You can find plenty of them over on Milkround School Leavers here.

    There are less in law at the moment, as many law programmes still require a degree. Your degree wouldn't necessarily have to be in law, but in order to practice law you'd need to convert your qualifications to law by taking the one-year Graduate Diploma in Law (GDL) course. There are other roles within the legal industry that you could consider later in your career that don't involve practising law, for example, HR and Marketing etc.

    Hope this helps - let us know if you have any other questions!

    Thanks,

    Chantelle & The Milkround School Leavers team

    Hi Bruce267099

    Law might be more of struggle to get into without a degree, however there is a range of business Apprenticeships out there.

    I don't know if you have looked into IBM Apprenticeships, but we offer a business specific course, which you would achieve a Level 4 Diploma in business, this is the equivalent to the first year at degree level.

    You have the opportunity to get experience in a very well known company as well as getting education and qualifications.

    When I was still doing A-Level's I did not want to go to University either and IBM was a great alternative.

    I hope this helped.
