We hope you were rewarded for your hard work, and went absolutely bananas when you received your results. But what now? What next? The time has come to for you decide what you are going to make of your future.

Here is your essential guide to the decisions in front of you, and the options available to you after A level results day 2023…

Apprenticeship or University?

Apprenticeship or university? It’s a real pickle – like trying to choose a sandwich at Marks & Spencer – an impossible choice. How does a person decide between the BLT and the tuna? 

There are so many things to consider, ​just like choosing between an apprenticeship or a university degree. The article below​ will walk you through the pros and cons of each option. 

Give it a read to find out how modern apprenticeships have changed in the last five years, and discover which pathway is the best fit with your career aspirations.

Degree Apprenticeships

As a post A level student, you also might want to consider applying for either a higher apprenticeship or a degree apprenticeship

Higher apprenticeships

A higher apprenticeship requires two or more A levels (or the equivalent qualifications). You will require three or more A levels to qualify for a degree apprenticeship (or the equivalent qualifications). 

Degree apprenticeships

Degree apprenticeships are an opportunity for you to get a degree, without having to pay tuition fees. You’ll also receive a salary for the duration of the scheme. It’s like a golden ticket.
