Would you study an accounting degree were it not for the apprenticeship - did you apply for A+F courses through UCAS?

Ok - so the choice is to do an apprenticeship in pretty much the same field you would do a standard degree in. Which universities have you applied for?

If it were me I'd probably go for the degree apprenticeship as its a big name company. I might not be so confident were I turning down a place at LSE or Imperial (data, finance course).
The educational partner of a degree apprenticeship is irrelevant. What matters is the company you are working in and getting experience at (which in the ideal situation, will be where you'll be offered a graduate role once you finish the degree apprenticeship with them, as I gather many such apprenticeships aim to recruit their apprentices directly to keep the time and effort they spent training them in house).

Also if your goal is to work in accountancy then where you do your degree is basically irrelevant anyway. It's not investment banking, even the big 4 don't care where you got the degree from. Having a wealth of experience in the field from the degree apprenticeship will make much more difference.
