      There are jobs in the UK that do not degree level skill to be able to do. However, the more and more people you send to university, the more of these jobs need a degree - because it means that the people without a degree are seen an incompetent and therefore unemployable.
      I know that there are jobs for which you dont need university skills. but I think that there are thousands of wasted opportunities, thousands of jobs which could be there if there were enough people with an adequate degree.

      In germany there are several thousand engineers and physicists less than "the economy" actually needs.

      in addition to that there are those jobs which do not exist today but which could be there if there was more competition between and thus lower wages for people with university degrees.
