What about it not being the issue that a job NEEDS a degree, but that a degree helps you to get a job in a area if you have one. And as it's always all over the news how many less jobs/more unemployment partially in young people having a degree may help you get a job when you finish-plus probably looks better on a CV than many unemployed years.
I'm not saying you need to do a degree, because it really is not for everyone (like I regret doing mine.. hate it) but, their could be another side to it.

Most well paid careers require a degree. If I just wanted to do something I'd enjoy I'd probably be a healthcare support worker or something but they're so low paid its not sustainable in the long run.
As for a career that doesn't involve sitting in an office (much), what about the military? Officer pay is really very good (£30k after training for several roles), and think of all the stuff you get to do that others don't and will be in awe of. Whilst you don't technically need a degree to do many of the roles, there are some specialist roles that require it (how about being a military GP?), and to be honest the military wants top quality people which in many cases means people who have had a good amount of life experience who have worked hard for stuff (coincidentally, they ask many young applicants to go to uni first). Maybe worth just having a look into it.
