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.

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.
