First step

To study, or not to study?

Deciding what to do after leaving school, which path to take, is never easy. However, there are lots of good reasons for choosing the higher education route: a university degree is your entry ticket to a wide range of careers. Management positions usually require a degree, and graduates have much better promotion prospects than people who have not been to university. On average, graduate salaries are 30-50% higher than those of non-graduates, and if you have a degree, you are much less likely to find yourself unemployed.
