A level or apprenticeshipWatch
Quick guides to apprenticeships
I really want to dentistry however it is hard to get in so I’m thinking of a engineering apprenticeship. I feel like it’s a more safe option but won’t make me as happy as being a dentist as I will regret not taking the chance. Can you do apprenticeship after you do A levels for engineering or something related to helping people such as working in a lab or is it harder as I feel like that would be a backup. It’s a tough choice. Anybody in the same position and have any regret. For me I feel like not doing a levels is giving up on my dream before even trying to chase it
I work in orthopaedics myself after doing a degree apprenticeship, developing devices to restore skeletal joints that are diseased of damaged from trauma.
Contrary to what most people believe, It’s the bioengineers who often write the surgical procedures. Engineers play a huge part in most medical industries.
Personally, I prefer the engineering side of the industry rather than if I’d actually studied to carry out the procedures myself.
Note: I never did my A levels. I did a level 3 apprenticeship before my degree apprenticeship.
