Yes, you can. You can also go into a trade (plumbers and electricians don't require a degree, they will ALWAYS be in demand, and can make upwards of £100k a year) or take an apprenticeship. University isn't the be and end all.

What has that got to do with OP's question? Very sly comment indeed. Grammatical errors are uncalled for here. Op simple asked for an advice. Op, esralled provided very good advice. I would think of his advice and find ways to achieve it.

Indeed they are, which is why I asked the question in the first place. I fail to see how this is sly, however.

It's relevant because if we know where OP is based we can more accurately provide information and advise.

No point suggesting a British careers advise service if OP isn't in Britain, for example...

I note from one of your other threads you studied English at university, are you in the UK or somewhere else? Did you leave university early without completing the course?

You can apply for jobs that don't ask for a degree. There's plenty out there.

It is highly relevant and was my first thought when I read it this morning. As Doonesbury points out it is relevant because we need to establish which education system they are talking about to provide relevant advice. If they arent in the UK then its pointless me providing contact details for UK resources.

There doesnt have to be anything sly about it at all.

I'm not living in the UK. I live in Indonesia. I studied English for Creative Industry there. I studied there for 3 years and I got one year left for thesis but i left it.
I thought i can apply for jobs but it seems like most of them require a Bachelor degree in my country or diploma.

I guess my future is on hold here. I tried to apply some jobs but they don't accept it because like i told you "No bachelor degree"

Are you able to resume your studies if you can show you had extenuating circumstances (eg an illness)?

This is mostly a UK website so I'm not familiar with the Indonesian employment market, but I'm quite sure there will be junior roles that don't require a degree. Perhaps ask at an employment agency?

I'm tagging wolfmoon88 for thoughts....

Thank you for the mention

I'm not sure I would be able to help much other than confirming that most decent jobs in Asia requires a person to have completed their bachelor's degree... If you can resume your studies (which you would need to contact your former uni about) that would be best as you were really close to finishing university.
