Degree apprenticeship

I was wondering if I could do an degree apprenticeship in computer science without any prior knowledge about coding or programming eg( no A levels or gcse in cs)

I'm on the verge of doing that myself, although i did do computer science for gcse, just not a level. As far as I'm aware, u just need to have done either maths or computer science for a levels to do a degree apprenticeship in computer science, so if youve got maths a level, then you pretty much can.

As long as you've got maths you can do a degree apprenticeship in Digital & Technology Solutions which is the computer science alternative for apprenticeships.

Its good to have some knowledge though and show that you are eager maybe learn a language for free like Python from YouTube or check out Harvard's CS50 which is a great introduction to computer science and will help you get a good foundation.
