Description

Is Going to Uni Worth it? offers a guide to the different options available to 16-19 year old school leavers, enabling them to make informed decisions about their futures. A 'value scale' help readers weigh up the best option for them by assessing criteria such as long term financial gain; access to working environment; what employers value; personal development; and independence. Since university has become the expected norm for many young people, some school leavers may not be evaluating all the options available in order to make the best career choice for themselves. This book enables them to do this effectively, including apprenticeships, further education courses, sponsored degrees, and work-based learning to give well-rounded research-based advice in an easy to read style. The book covers many decision-making factors, including: * What the choices are at 18, such as apprenticeships, further education courses, sponsored degrees, and work-based learning * The values and challenges of each option * What employers want * Ways to get a degree other than university * The perception of university and what factors have created it * Satisfaction survey results from past school leavers School leavers will be able to assess whether uni is the best option for them based on evidence, not perception.
