Honestly in the same position as you.
I have both offers for a Degree and a Degree apprenticeship.

The way you have to think about it is - No debt. Get paid. Get Experience. Get a Degree. vs. £40,000 Debt + Get a Degree.
My main factor was the social factor, and moving away into a flat/house share etc.

Taking that out of the equation I think it's clear to see the most beneficial path, you'll get a degree, totally paid (in my case).
A salary to live off, not 'barely survive' on noodles, like I planned at Uni.
AND you get the ever so vital EXPERIENCE that will make you stand out from other candidates on your CV.

I've certainly made my mind up.

Places are still quite limited, have you done any research about what kind of apprenticeship/ course you would be interested in? The more info you share, the easier it will be to advise you

It ultimately depends on what you want to do in the future. If you want to go into Medicine or Dentistry, then the university would be the recommended route, but if you want to do something vocational at university, then Apprenticeships would be the better option.

But you are a bit late in applying for degree apprenticeships - the months for applying are from September to February, there are not many degree apprenticeship vacancies that are open this late.
