University Level

Why go to university?

You will pick up useful, transferable skills at university that will help you in whatever job you choose. You will strengthen problem-solving, money-management, time-management and presenting skills. In addition to this, you will also have access to lots of resources and support to develop those skills further and widen your contacts through networking.

What will I gain?

A degree will provide you with the opportunity to gain an in-depth knowledge of your chosen subject but also to develop transferable skills such as communication, presentation and problem-solving skills, while enhancing your ability to work as part of a team.

What types of degrees are there?

There are many types of degrees to consider, Bachelor of Arts degrees, Foundation Degrees, Degrees with foundation years, and these change each year. The Complete University Guide has complied a useful list of degrees and what they mean. You can use this information to decide what is best for you.

Can I obtain a higher level qualification if I do not go to university?

Yes, you can. You do not have to go to university to build a career without a degree. University can offer so much more than just a career path at the end, however there are opportunities available to you within colleges, work environments and online. If university is not the right choice for you, that is okay – there are plenty of other pathways to explore.

If you are considering university, there are lots of useful resources that you can use to aide your self-research. If you can, arrange to attend a few open days so you can gain an insight into university life.
