That you actually have to repay the Student Loan
That your degree is virtually the same as any other one (except career ones e.g Medicine / Vet / Dentistry)
That virtually everyone else has a degree, and getting a job with a "generic" degree is tough
That many people will probably continue studying Masters / PhD etc.
Nothing really. I had lived in a couple of countires, paid tax, worked etc before I went to university
No more free access to OED.
how much you would miss uni life.
The amount of free time you have!
That most university couples break up (in my example - every couple but that became a couple during uni broke up within a year on uni finishing).That most won't walk into a fantastic paid job. There will be long hours, high stress and one learns that hard way that there is more to life than money and work.Oh, and how great uni was and that you will constantly reminisce.
the opputunity cost of 3/4 years. looking at friends who never went to uni its abit like have a look at what you could have won. the truth is this you can achieve far more in 3/4 years than you can getting a degree. they did apprenticeships and are qualified or part qualified proffesionals in accounting, it, law and have nice cars and even mortgages or married. while i have a piece of paper and a shed load of debt applying for glorifed school leavers jobs

How hard it has been to get a good job - despite my degree, internships, paid and unpaid work experience, extra study and extracurriculars... Anyone else found this?
Also how frustrating it is not to be able to use student discounts anymore
