Degree Apprenticeships

(Salford)

Degree Apprenticeships Manchester Metropolitan University




Below is a 40 minute talk looking at the reality of post-18 options including University, Student Finance, Apprenticeships and the pros/cons of both paths. It also covers key dates in terms of transition to University & Apprenticeships between now and August 2021.

In this section of our website we have included links to some brilliant resources that will help you to plan and manage your transition to University, Apprenticeships or perhaps a Gap Year.

We have also included links to many of the local universities and they also have some fantastic resources to help with things such as writing your personal statement, student finance or finding out about particular degree subjects. Universities are also running virtual Open Days which you need to sign up for; again these are great way to find out about your chosen universities and degree courses.
