    How many apprenticeships did you/are you applying for?

    Basically the title, I have started the application for 7 so far and have sent one off. Also, what were your apprenticeships for? Law? Banking?...
    I applied for 4 apprenticeships in total, three of which were degree apprenticeships - 2 of them were software engineering/consultancy/investment banking & the other was a business apprenticeship. Then the 4th apprenticeship I applied for was a Level 3 operations apprenticeship - These were all for top global firms.

    I managed to get a place on 2/4 of the apprenticeships I applied for and I ended up choosing the software engineering degree apprenticeship which I started more than a month ago.

    That is great! Did you also apply for university just in case you didn't get the apprenticeship?

    Yeah I did!

    I had my heart set to go to University of Kent to study Computer science. But I was recommended to apply to apprenticeships and I decided I should apply to it and see where I would get in the process. I didn't think that I would manage to get a place on the programme but somehow did.....
