    Pros and cons for both? Aside from the obvious debt. By the way the BBC program lasts for 22 months and the wage is about 14k a year I think.

    Experience is a price beyond rubies.

    Also one thing to know is that a Job isn't guaranteed at the end of the Apprenticeship at the BBC, it is possible they will want to keep you but it isn't certain, you will be moving around the UK a bit too and studying at different universities aswell. And the BBC will want to either rent a place or such so you have a house if your own.

    Not 100% if this applies to the Journalism Apprenticeship but does for the Digital and Engineering Degree Apprentices at the BBC, I was informed that the BBC pays for your stay while you are out of the country away from your house, I talked with someone on one of their apprenticeships while I was in work experience at the BBC and they enjoy it.
