11 Huge Companies You Can Apply to Without a Uni Degree

There was a time when students were paid to do degrees. Yes, that’s right — they were offered bursaries and grants in the hope that the government could help the workforce become more educated and efficient. Sadly, those days are long gone and with the recent rise of student fees to £9,250 a year, many are probably looking for an alternative to University. Fortunately, companies are responding to this need — big-name businesses are increasingly looking for talented candidates regardless of their educational background.

Below, we’ve found 11 companies that have said they do not require an undergraduate degree for some of their jobs. Your dream role awaits!
