Q: What are my options after I finish my A level/BTEC level 3 courses?
Q: I'm thinking of taking a year out, what could I do?
A. Reasons for taking a gap year vary. For example, you may want to use the time to review your future plans, go travelling, do work experience (possibly linked to your chosen course or future career plans), develop new skills, earn money to fund your university place or volunteer in the UK or abroad.
For more information, check out useful websites, such as Prospects.
Q: I want to study art at university; do I need to study and art foundation course first?
A. Possibly. It is often a requirement to have studied an art and design foundation course to gain entry to many art and design courses at university. You need to check the specific entry requirements for your chosen universities.
Q: What are higher apprenticeships?
A. The UCAS website conveys that higher apprenticeships provide an opportunity to gain a higher education qualification, such as an NVQ Level 4, HND or foundation degree. They can take from one to five years to complete, and involve part-time study at a college, university or training provider.
Use the apprenticeship website to check out the latest apprenticeship vacancies.
Q: What are degree apprenticeships?
A. In March 2015 these were launched by the government. They have been developed by businesses, universities and colleges. Apprentices will split their time between university study and the workplace and will be employed throughout – gaining a full bachelor’s or master’s degree from a top university while earning a wage and getting real on-the-job experience in their chosen profession.
Use the apprenticeship website to search for degree apprenticeship vacancies.
Aston University also offer many degree apprenticeships on their website.
