Some advantages

  • Studying a university degree will help develop your professional career and general culture. No matter what career you choose, in the years you spend in college you will learn about unfamiliar subjects, talk to people with other points of view and learn to structure your arguments and opinions well. You will acquire tools that will be very useful throughout your life.
  • With a university degree (bachelor’s or master’s) you will generally start earning a higher salary than a person without these studies. So, even if you start working a couple of years later, it will be worth the wait financially.
  • You will have more opportunities to grow in the organization where you are hired. Unfortunately, for some managerial or executive positions, a bachelor’s or master’s degree is required. 
  • Student life is fun! Of course, this is a serious decision that you don’t have to take lightly. And you will have to consider serious arguments. But don’t forget that your time at university can be the most fun time of your life. You meet a lot of new people, have free time to spend on hobbies, travel and yes, why not, go for a beer with friends from time to time.
  • If you decide to take a «break» from studies and go back to school a year or two later, there is a risk: that you will never ever go back. You’ll probably get used to having a little more income, more freedom, and lose the habit of reading and studying hard. It can be hard to start up again after a year without books and discipline.
