    Here is an article from The Independent Newspaper showing how Graduates are struggling to find jobs.


    Some having to do 'Non-Professional' jobs that didn't require a degree.

    Now that the tution fees have gone up to 8/9k a year, graduates are leaving with debts of 30k or more.

    The lucky ones that do find jobs then looking forward to working 40/45 years until they retire.

    Do you know there is a better way...

    Start up your own business, build it along side your studies. You may not need to work for someone else. Be your own boss, write your own destiny.

    This tells me that there are not enough graduate jobs and simply that too many people are going to university with employment expectations that are unrealistic.

    Self-employment is an option - but it's not clear to me why that is reliant on going to university.
