Best age to go to university Watch
Will graduating at an older age affect graduate prospects?
There is non. Everyone has different circumstances and needs. I believe that those who dont feel ready to go uni or know what they want to do, should take a year (or more) off to explore their options and try things out.
As people have said in your replies, it depends on the person!
I wasn't ready to go to university when I was 18 and then decided to return as a mature student.
What course are you considering?
I'm not interested in promotions.
In fact I'm leaving a well paying job to go back to university to do a job that pays less.
Also if you're doing a health care degree to be a nurse or social worker you probably won't be driven by the thought of being promoted.
Though I was polite enough to check your recent threads to make sure, and in them they not only confirm you're barely out of school, but you're begging vehemently for info on everything like you have no clue about uni. Yet here you are saying this?
I know on the internet everyone thinks they're omniscient and right and have to 'answer' everything, but you're messing with other people's lives here just to stroke your ego. Don't.
Exactly this. Whilst I did some uni studies in my 20s, I dropped out. Returning in my mid-30s was better for me, seeing me achieve a 1st, several uni and international academic awards, and a full scholarship for my MA. I don't believe this would have been realistic in my younger years. So as kkboyk said, there is no perfect age to start uni
Thats definitely much more beneficial. It seems that many schools and parents are forcing young people to go to and complete university as quickly as possible, in order to have a chance of getting a 'good' job. I kinda wished I dropped out and have worked in IT instead
