Got an offer to study CS at Queen Mary
Got a offer to do an Apprenticeship at a pretty good technology company and along side get a degree from Lancaster university.
I mean Queen Mary is Russell group and all but in every leaguee board Lancaster beats Queen Mary ( well the once I looked at, please don't get offended )
I am leaning towards the apprenticeship but I am just worried that will it limit my future growth in the company.
I am very interested in doing software engineering and always wanted a career in tech.
Also to let you know it is a level 6 software engineering apprenticeship with specialising in digital and Technology solutions.
WHAT SHOULD I DO?

I can't lie apprenticeship definitely triumphs uni. I mean you get PAID work experience, the chances of levelling up in the company, having real responsibility from the start AND a degree?? you'd be dumb not to take it. And if you ever decide to not stay with the company, you can always take that experience and degree to a new company and probably start as an experienced professional while your friends start as graduates with tons in debt and barely any work experience. Need I say any more? What company is it by the way? I'd love to apply to the company too for next next year (taking gap year)
