    Well, here in Scotland a carrier bags costs more than a Bachelor's degree so, I'd probably take the money.

    I value money a lot less than most people.

    I have everything I need, All I spend money on is holidays. When I’m close to death I wont care about how nice my car was 50 years ago or about how many extra unneeded rooms I have in my house. My idea of success is contentment, knowing I have experienced everything I wanted to.

    As you said aimed at ‘Non-Stem’ this is me, but I will hopefully be studying at Cambridge or LSE so if I want a large graduate salary I can probably get one, but I’ll just pick a job I enjoy (something I hear no-one ever say).

    Of course, I will take a degree. The value of 50 grand is low as compared to a degree

    I have earnt on average £30-70,000 a year since graduating - as a mum I have not worked full time since having kids. Friends without degrees earn on average less than £10 an hour. I earn £80. They NEVER catch up. It's a no brainer. Get a degree. Unless it's in some weird and useless subject.
