Many of you will be unsure on what the benefit of going to university is. You may want to start earning immediately, or feel your career path does not need a degree.
This is fine! University is not for everyone, but there are a few things you should take into consideration
Generally speaking, a degree will…
Increase life time earnings.
Be less likely to lead to unemployment.
Lead into managerial positions.
Allow job hunting to be international not just local.
Between 70-80% of graduate vacancies do not specify a degree subject. This means any student with a degree can apply regardless of what subject they studied.
TRUE OR FALSE?
You are limited in applying to a job that relevant to your degree subject.
One of the reasons graduates are considered for a wide range of jobs is because employers recognise all the transferable skills students gain at university. Click below to view our guide on what transferable skills are.
For some career pathways gaining a higher education qualification can fast track you up the careers ladder, so you reach a position of seniority faster. Click below for our guide on how a degree can enhance your job prospects.
