I am half way through the second semester of uni in my 1st year, and I have decided that uni aint for me. So i have decided to drop out at the end of this 1st year. But I am wondering, because I have dropped out, and does not have a degree, does this mean, i wont be able to get a decent job paying reasonable salary. For me, a reasonable salary would be earning £21k a year. I would like to reach this level of salary with about 5 years of experience. I am only 19 now. That should be an easy feat to achieve if you have a degree but since i am dropping out, I know it will be harder.
So what are my career paths available?
The most obvious one that came to my mind is to get a random job in a supermarket such as tesco or something and then work my way upto some kind of managerial position in 5 years or so. Another carrer that interests me is to be driving instructor. Legally it would take me another 2 years before i can become one, but If i do, It seems like driving instructors make some good money (£20 an hour). So What are some options which will allow me to earn around 21k in about 5 years time?
Careers that does not require a degree? Help?? Watch

Pretty much any job would allow you to earn £21k in 5 years, if you are hard working and willing to get on. A degree doesn't entitle you to a high paying job. I know plenty of people with degrees, who aren't doing too well, but I know others who haven't got a degree who are doing work they like and getting paid handsomely.
