Huffington Post: Is university still the best route to a desirable career?

Screen Shot 2016-08-18 at 10.13.19Chief Executive Maddalaine Ansell writes for Huffington Post on A-level results day 2016.

She argues in the piece that for students considering whether to go to university, that ‘the important thing is to choose a degree with your eyes open.’

She adds:

“The facts are that even now 80% graduates are working in a graduate job three years after graduating and, even in the recent difficult labour markets, graduates are 17% more likely to be employed than non-graduates. There are many exciting professions for which a degree is an essential entry requirement and many more where even if a degree isn’t required, employers are more likely to look favourably at graduates.”
