It's a forum full of students, the majority of which haven't worked and seem to imagine that it's a degree or unemployment with no middle ground. Realistically, there are people without degrees in decent jobs, and people with degrees doing entry level jobs.(Original post by CherryCherryBoomBoom)
I know a lot of people who didn't go to uni but have decent careers. There are plenty of jobs where vocational courses or even just work experience are much more important. It's a very middle-class and small-minded idea to think that you need a degree to have a good life.

Young people don't vote. Young people get screwed by the government.
Easy way to change things...
The "DAMMIT I'M PAYING £9000 A YEAR FOR THIS!" attitude is raising standards in universities I think.
But yeah, paying more does suck.

im sorry but considering the actions of the previous and current government, what on earth compels some of you to believe that the government will keep to its promise of forgiving the debt after 30 years?
