I think that a degree helps a person to get on in life. I also think that other things you learn at university, like independence, are equally helpful. A lot of it depends on hobbies and societies that you get involved in.
Employers aren’t just interested in degrees these days. You’ve got to look at other ways you can expand yourself. They don’t just want someone who has spent four years of their life book-bashing. They want someone who can communicate well with people and work hard in a team. University definitely broadens the mind. You get to talk to people and avenues open up for you which you thought never would.
