These days universities are getting more and more expensive and i can see the merit of people not wanting to get into debt over a piece of paper.

Plus a lot of information are freely available on the internet. I swear i have seen some places where the information provided is more comprehensive than those in my university syllabus.

The ultimate question is why arent employers more and more willing to adapt to the fact that people can completely self learn all the skills and knowledge needed without going to university and give those folks a chance?

I look through job searching websites and i have a feeling employers are heading in the opposite direction and are becoming more and more unrealistic with their requirements.

I suspect the short answer is 'because it's a labour buyers market and they can'
