    My dads been annoying me lately saying if you dont have a degree you wont get far and will never get a good job.. I dont have a degree but I work with many grads who got the degree to do the job I do..I got in by having knowledge of the work subject which I pickedup over the years as a hobby.. And more often than not I have emails from grads asking me to help them and look over their work etc.. Im debating whether I should return to education and get a degree or continue getting experience??

    I guess it depends what field you want to work in. It sounds as though if you're going to work in the field you are, you're better off not wasting your time with a degree.

    What rag said/ It depends. is not having a degree causing you problems? If not, then no. ofc you cna pick up new skills and have the experience of uni as a change. now you have the experience of work, then you should be able to slip back in easily. Think about the cost.

    Degrees are necessary for technical fields like science and maths. Anything hands on, experience is usually king.
