    I wouldn't say university is a waste of time for me, but I have wasted a lot of time being here.

    Having a degree will be good for me, it's an achievement I'll be proud of. Whether it lands me a good job, or a job at all, I don't know or care, for now.

    My first degree was a total waste of time and money. I'm now studying something completely different to better enable me to find a career I enjoy.

    Like a one year party, I can't call that a waste of time.

    In 5 years time, would you rather have a degree or not have a degree???

    5 years will soon come round, and you'd be better off having a degree than having nothing at all

    My older siblings found university VERY rewarding!

    -Independence
    -Interesting/challenging classes and professors
    - American football and CRAZY school spirit
    - Researching and conducting experiments
    - Greek life, not really rewarding, but funxD
    - Studying various subjects
    I don't know how university is in the UK, but I imagine it has to be worth it too!

    if you study a proper subject, i.e. STEM, then university is worth it.
    otherwise it's just an expensive excuse for 3 years of partying.

    Not really because whilst you've been at uni another person maybe out getting real experience meaning in 5 years time they will be in a better position than you, seen it happen time and time again.

    I wouldn't say university is a waste of time. People might be out getting experience but I apply for jobs and more and more employers look for or chose people that already have their degrees. And it doesn't even have to be a subject specific one either in some cases. Having a degree can get you on good graduate programmes but some universities even have work placements designed into the course. Just look at the one your interested on their website and get as much information as you can.
