    London and almost 40 so I much more aware of the world of work and life and in my early twenty i through similar to you. It hard lesson but everyone will learn it,
    I believed that having a 2.1 in any subject was a meal ticket to a better life and so did my class mates and traveling broaden the horizons. For most graduates degree that don't lead to professional jobs they ended up not getting a graduate level jobs they end up behind their school mates who did an apprenticeship in term of salary. Also some of most nieve people i ever meet have been people i meet while traveling. there also be studies of British people who travel are more close minded to problems such as homelessness and child poverty in Britain.

    Then you should find it understandable why I'd rather not take life advice from you.

    I don't think anyone these days believes that.

    I'm not sure how you classify graduates as "behind" apprentices'. I assume you are once again reducing someones entire life to the number on their paycheque. I can't imagine looking at life like that.

    the person I have the most respect that I meet at university was a young gentleman who lost his hold family before the age of 5. He come for London but social service put him into care in Newcastle he had lived in more than 40 different places when to over 20 different schools and spent time in child mental health unit.He left school unable to write his own name and social service left him in flat in london on his own at 17 with no life skills. he worked on building sites as a labour and at 19 did a part time basic skill classes for over 2 years at his local further education college and than did access course to high education and when to university part time. He had support staff around him in every class and he didn't miss one class or come in late he course work was always on time and he work in the morning before class as a cleaner and in the evenings as a potwasher in a pub. He got his degree didn't care about his grade now he work as gardener and has brought his flat. Ps he never left the country before he was 28

    That's all very well and good, but once again random anecdotes are not a reasonable basis for such wide assumptions. I personally wouldn't care much for someone who didn't care about their grade at uni, but hey ho.

    He cared that he got a degree when people told him that he was useless and being a look after child who will get nowhere in life. That more valuable to him it gave him self-respected than his grade.

    So he spent 3 years and god knows how much money getting a piece of paper for absolutely no purpose than trying to satiate his own insecurities? From what you've said previously in this thread I'm incredibly surprised you think so highly of that.

    So doing a university degree purely because you enjoy it, even if you never intended to obtain any monetary benefit from it, is perfectly acceptable, but travelling because you enjoy it is just a ridiculous idea? Even when it's stupid and I disagree with it, I'd wish people would at least have consistency in their logic.

    Why do you have such a thing against people just enjoying their lives? If someones saved up why shouldn't they have a bit of time off? Maybe take up painting? Renovate your house? Or do what I'd do and go ski for a season?
