    Speaking hypothetically here.Say you were the complete your first year at uni but then fancy moving onto an apprenticeship, maybe the course wasn't what you expected or you failed the year, do you think this would have a negative impact on your job prospects? As you've in essence got a year of uni that doesn't really count for anything.Interested to hear your thoughts.

    Funding is limited for people who have higher than level 3 qualifications.

    You will have to check what your first year counts as, perhaps a level 4 qualification? If you have a level 4 qualification it may mean that an employer would have to pay the cost for all of your training (rather than having it subsidized or paid for).

    Funding is different depending on your age and also the level of qualification you have.

    I am a university graduate who is now doing an apprenticeship, this means that my employer pays for all of my training.

    Hope this helps
