    Due to start uni in September.
    In a 16k yr job atm.
    Confused as to whether I should go to uni or stay in employment.

    I can either be a poor student for 3 year. ( will only have £1800 saved + student loan).

    Or I can stay in work, get myself a new car and other 'fancy' things I wouldn't be able to get if I went to uni.

    So so so confused, it's actually getting me down as Im scared incase I make the wrong choice :/

    you're job may not last forever in the current climate

    It might be good now being able to buy things etc, but in 3 or 4 years time will you still be doing the same thing for the same money?

    Genuine question as I have no idea what it is you do or if theres oppertunity to move up.

    I was making 17k on my gap year job, yeah its pretty tidy at this age but definately not what I want to be earning when I'm older.
