I wonder, reading back over this thread, that had my parents the money to put me through university, where I’d be now, and what I’d be doing?

.. or if I’d be any happier?

I get what you’re saying Tigs, I know there may have been lots of circumstances that are personal to your family but back
In the day, for us old peeps, uni was free, no tuition fees etc, student grants easily available so it was accessible to all at point of entry.
I’m about to sign up to start another degree next year, it deffo isn’t free this time! :shock:

....sign up and do one with me, oldest swingers in town lol

Hmm.. sounds intriguing..

Do I have to buy one of those uni scarves?


Be even better if we could go to Hogwarts! :whee:

You’ve just talked me out of it... [adrian.gif]

Don’t be knocking Harry Potter Tigs, those books have encouraged a generation of kids reading again. I’ve seen it, ever grateful for the inspiration :worthy:

To be fair, you haven't missed much Tiggy. Unless your degrees in medicine, law or engineering, your career path would have been the same.

There's too many people doing nonsense courses today. From general studies to sociology and cultural studies :rolleyes:

Brighton a university town and most graduates end up in dead end jobs for this every reason. Other drop out after being forced onto subjects they have no interested in. :wall:

Those like myself who attended a polytechnic instead of a university seem more really for the workplace. More realistic in our aims and training continued to this day. (CIOB require at least 2 weeks training per year for membership.)

But I think the question your really asking is:

Would I be richer if my parents sent me to University [shrug65465.gif]

The simple answer is no. It takes a stable home life and steady job to get a head in life. Few people have that and all the education in the world won't change that. :think:

Any university course I’d consider, wouldn’t be for financial gain, rather an interest in the course.. Anglo-Saxon period history, or naval history, to name but two..

Both my girls went to university, they worked hard to get there degrees, both have good jobs and both walked out of university and in to a good job.My son went to collage,did the same walked right out of collage and in to a good job. Why does it matter how you do it as long as you work hard and aim for what you want.
