I read that on average, for a four year degree, it takes about 20 years for the degree to become profitable. Of course, it depends on the degree, but with other pathways, like apprenticeships to the same job, do you think university is worth it?

It depends. the vast majority of people will never pay off their loans at all and they get it written off. Its a bit more complicated and depends on what degree, how well you do and where plus what you do after.

Is it worth it to them is a better questions and people dont always think in just £££ terms.

Degree pros in my eyes is that you can get into pretty much all entry level jobs out there (if they ain't picky about what the degree is in) but the opportunity cost (con) that comes with it is missing out on 3-4 potential years of work experience, be it paid or not.
