What to do

Jon, studying Psychology at the University of Glasgow

I think when you're picking your subjects or choosing whether to go to university or not, there's so many decisions you feel you have to make at once and you feel like you have to have your whole life planned out, but actually there's so many ways of choosing different things as you go or, if you find one door's closed, opening another.

Victoria, Apprentice in CAD design

The main benefits of doing an apprenticeship over uni is that you're...earning a decent wage, as well as getting a degree, if that's the apprenticeship route you go down. You also don't get left alone. You don't have to deal with your independency. You always have people to support you and you can have a social life as well as working.
