    Might be worth looking at higher apprenticeships with nuclear companies.

    e.g. Rolls Royce, BaE, Westinghouse

    Alternatively if you want to work for in fusion research perhaps think about a standard engineering or physics degree followed by a postgrad at a uni with a fusion research group e.g. https://www.york.ac.uk/physics/resea...-physics/vacs/

    Trent and UWS have Physics with Nuclear Tech.

    Liverpool has it too but they want ABB. Maybe give them a shot too.

    The rest, Birmingham, Lancaster, Leeds want a bit more
