I would like to go to University, but the thing is, I'm 22 years old and I just feel that I'm getting older and older, and I don't have a clue what I want to do with my life. In all honesty, I'd love to be a singer, but obviously I need a back up plan. I just don't know what type of back up plan I want, I don't know whether to go to University, I have no idea. Any advice...?

Browse some courses on UCAS or on the websites of the uni's you like the look of and see if anything grabs you- might be something you've never even thought of!

Age is not a factor if you want to learn...
The thing is whether you want to learn or not...

Browse university websites and read about the courses you are interested in...
There is usually a section where students describe their experience with the course, read those.... And then finally ask yourself what you want to do...

Being a singer is good but there is no guarentee that you will be successful, so you must be prepared to get a job if you can't get ahead with singing... So I think you should consider university...

I say unless you have a set career choice and know exactly what you're going to do, don't bother.

You come out with a piece of paper after 3 years and end up signing on the dole or working in Primark applying for management schemes.

This is what I worry about myself :erm:. Though, I wouldn't mind working in Primark, but could probably get there without a degree.

What are you interested in doing? anything?

Does IMO help to be interested in the subject otherwise it's too easy to procrastinate away your 3 years and come out with a mediocre degree class

If you want to learn, go to university. Simple.

If you're focused on singing though, maybe a performing arts college?
