Hi, I’m the same age as you and what I did was start a UCAS account, you can look through Uni’s, what they offer etc or do a career quiz to see what you may be interested in. They have UCAS events which showcase uni’s, apprenticeships and different employers etc. When I found a uni I contact their student advisors on who to contact when I need help, if you’re on UC you can also go to your work coach to ask. I booked financial advisors of my specific unis to see what I need to do and what they offer to support me. If you need anymore help lmk I can try help as much as possible!
