I wondered if people would like to discuss the real of holding a degree in real terms, considering debt acquired and vast time investment.
Opinion by The Guardian:
Personally as I stayed home to study and payed out only the very minimum, under approx. £3k per year, it was definitely worth it - even if my current job isn't well paying (as is the case for most graduates shortly after graduation). But for those that pay out about £50k for the experience (seemingly many now do), I would really struggle to justify the investment.

I'm conflicted with this.
One one hand, I am using a lot of the theories from my economics degree in my current job and without them, I wouldn't have done so well. On the other hand, my degree alone didn't get me a job, my experience from my part-time work did.
