I'm not too sure what I want to do after sixth form, whether that be go to uni or do an apprenticeship. Which unis are actually good for film and offer experience? And if I was to do an apprenticeship, which company's offer them and how do I go about applying?

I'm pro apprenticeship but it's what suits you and what you can successfully get into.

Your production houses like ITV ,BBC... They are competitive so apply when they open. I feel doing an apprenticeship in film will be much better. You usually apply directly on their websites
https://careermap.co.uk/itv-apprenticeships/
I suggest looking on the websites now seeing as most will have opened their recruitment window to see what they are looking for a levels and experience wise.

Try searching "film" and see what pop ups here
https://www.findapprenticeship.servi...ticeshipsearch

If you do a degree then opt for one that has a placement year option that way you can spend 1 year working at them production homes or elsewhere relevant to film. (I can't say which are good for film/not but that would be my tip).

Make a comparison bw the apprenticeship content and progression vs doing a degree & progression

This thread might be good for you to review

I found networking to be a huge benefit of my apprenticeship. I didn’t study film, I studied engineering, but I built relationships with people from different universities and companies through my project work.

I got informally offered a few academic and industry opportunities after completing my apprenticeship.

My point being, I’d expect networking early career in film would be even more rewarding?
