    Hiya, yes there is as you can apply for a higher or degree apprenticeship; this allows you to be employed and work towards a degree without the hefty fees many people (and their parents!) find to be an obstacle. I would recommend you set up an account on gov.uk because as soon as a higher or degree apprenticeship becomes live in your area and desired career area you'll receive an alert.

    Good luck

    If you're already doing a degree, it is highly unlikely you will be able to find an apprenticeship that fits around your degree course, as most apprenticeships require commitment 5 days a week.

    The main reason they're being discussed on this site is because they're a good alternative to university, so are now being considered more by school, and college leavers. Degree apprenticeships are becoming more popular and are a good route into employment, without the debt created by university.
