Earning a university degree has always been considered a high achievement, but is it still the best form of further education? Many top graduates are leaving university and unable to get jobs. With the increased fees, is it really worth it? Would it be better to go for a vocational qualification or apprenticeship? If so, should you wait until 18, or leave school at 16 and go straight into training?

If you are planning on a career in construction or manual labour, then I think a vocational qualification or apprenticeship is best. Employers are looking for practical skills rather than knowledge in theory. I still think it is best to continue education until you are 18 though, because if you later change your mind about what you want to do, a few GCSEs won't get you very far.


I think Open Universities gives you a great selection of courses. You can either choose a different career or take courses to enhance your current skills. http://www.open.edu.au/
University degrees are well-respected but you no longer really stand out by having one. They're best when you really know what field you want to work in, so you can combine the study with work experience.
It is now best to wait till your 18 to leave school.
I believe in Vocational qualification is a great idea for those who do not want to become a doctor, dentist and the like.
It's all about doing something you really would like to do, when getting out of bed each day!
People do too many jobs, they hate.
