Apprenticeship then University or University at a younger age (18)? Watch

    • Thread Starter

    I am studying mathematics at qmul University, but I'm actually having second thoughts whether I will get a good (well-paid, normal hours), intresting job out of it. If I did a higher apprenticeship now, I would maybe have more work experience, and get a job sooner. Then I will have money to study uni again, or get a chartered status in my apprenticeship, and if I do uni first, i cant do apprenticeship or get free courses/training.

    Definitely do the apprenticeship. You can get into really good ones which also fund your degrees so look into that
