    I would defo recommend going to uni. For me personally it has been the best experience of my life. It has taught me a lot about how to get on with a wide range of people and has helped me develop as a person.

    Personally I don't think you need to go, statistically you're 50% more likely to earn more with a degree, so you still have a good chance of earning a good salary without a degree. Alternatively you could get an apprenticeship with a company and work for them while going to uni part time, money & a degree that's what I'm about to do, can't wait.

    Why did you bother asking on TSR? If you are questioning the significance of a University degree, don't do it. Honestly, if you do not feel comfortable in a "bookish" atmosphere (well, some universities are more bookish that others), do not go!!!!

    Personally I think it would be well worth it. It's a myth that a languages degree leads only to translating/interpeting or teaching; you can do loads of things, like work for a big international company, and over 60% of graduate jobs are open to people with a degree in any subject. Not only will it be much easier to get a job with a degree, you'll also have a fantastic experience. You have to leave your family sometime, and I think it would be easier doing it to go to uni, where you'll be with loads of other people your own age going through the same thing. Why do you have to leave Spain though? Can't you go to uni there?
