    I have an offer to study business at an RG Uni; Mum wants me to go here. I also have an offer to study business at college; which i'd prefer to do. I recently got rejected from the apprenticeship that i had planned and really hoped on getting. I don't really want to go to college/uni, because of my mental health i really struggle concentrating on things. However, other apprenticeships i've seen are mostly minimum wage (£3.72 an hour) and everyone is telling me i can do better. Is anyone in a similar situation and really unsure about what to do?

    have we talked before? Was iit the electrical engineers?
    Uni is good, but dont go until you are ready. Look at these boards with people withdrawing or unhappy. You need to be in a good frame of mind to get the best out of it.

    Look hard for another apprenticeship. Also get feedback as to why you didnt get this one, so you can improve technique.
    Apprenticeship will give you some work experience and time to think about uni, they dont last long.

    Nah,not engineering. I took a year out for medical reasons and I don't wanna take another year out, I feel like I have to go to uni cause most other apprenticeships are closed. I don't really wanna go but it's the main other way (other than apprenticeships) to get into the business industry :c

    apprenticeships go up to 25- by going to uni you are commiting to a 30-60k debt so o at a time of your choosing.
