    I would say primarily check if degree apprenticeships exist. They are like any other apprenticeship - you work, get paid and learn on the job; but, you actually get a university-equivalent degree.

    I know for sure that Barclays now do have degree apprenticeships and that more 'technical' and empirical areas of employment have begun to offer them e.g. design, architecture et cetera.

    Otherwise, ask - ask your friends, family and more importantly teachers who have experience of university.

    If Uni doesn't seem right for you, maybe look into apprenticeships (the UCAS website has a few listed), or maybe some other options on top of that. Plus, even if your course would be full-time, I wonder if you've looked at the contact/lecture hours, as that can vary by a lot from course to course etc., and may leave time for a part time, or on-off job. Also, some courses at uni include a year in industry (or something of the sort), during which you get paid, which may be something to look at if money is a thinking point.

    Not sure which country you're a part of, but if the university is free then I would definitely at least try it out. For me at least, school provides a place where you get to meet interesting people and learn from them. I honestly don't think you're going to lose anything if you go to the university unless your life desperately needs money to survive. University also increases the amount of money you will earn for life, since you have an extra qualification which some employers may be looking for. However, if you live in UK for example and the university isn't free, the rate you will have to pay it back will be VERY small and if you don't earn more than I think £20,000 you don't have to pay it back. My best advice to you is try it for a year, and if you don't like it then do something else.
