Why Study For A Degree?


The simple answer is ‘Because it improves your career prospects’ and increases your earning power.

There are more benefits for students than just achieving their chosen degree at the end of their course of study.  Most university students get work experience during their university life – whether to supplement their living costs or as work experience related to their course.

In a working environment you get the opportunity to learn a number of skills, such as time management, working in a team, business practice and more.  Whether you do an internship, a short period of work experience, a block release or a part-time job or working as a volunteer, they all add valuable skills to your CV.

But what about those people who have chosen not to do a degree right after they’ve completed their formal schooling?  There are plenty of reasons that people make that decision:

  • It may be that family circumstances make it too challenging
  • It might be that an individual is reluctant to get into debt at the beginning of their career
  • It might be that someone can’t decide what they really want to do as a career and can’t choose a degree that they feel will be useful
  • Earning a wage may be a more attractive option – and the average 18-year-old rarely looks too far into the future to see that their earning potential may be limited.

If any of those sound familiar does that mean that your career choices are limited?

There is a cliché that says ‘It’s never too late …’ and that’s true when it comes to education.  The problem is that it can be difficult once you’ve left formal education and entered the working world – going back to University as a mature student still needs financing.

The older you get the more likely it is that you will have a family to consider and the financial demands could make it virtually impossible to afford the fees, books and equipment and living costs.  And, of course, leaving a young family to go to university can be beyond most people’s ability to manage.

That means that you need a creative solution – that works around the rest of your life.  An online study programme ensures that a degree is within the grasp of anyone who really wants it.  Find out more about your future.
