Why do I need to obtain a degree?

In spite of all disadvantages of obtaining a degree, university education has also benefits, with graduates tending to be happier and living longer than those who went straight from school to work.
Students must understand that the benefit of getting a degree ‘does not necessarily translate into cash terms’ and better employment opportunities..

Common mistakes
The most common mistake which women are doing is that they keep collecting certificates as they think that it will help them. Majority of people do not need in their education more than one degree for their job purposes. So do not cheat yourself, that you need a second degree to get a job, if you did not get it after your first degree. “Professor Steve Smith, vice chancellor of Exeter University and chairman of the 1994 Group, said that employers valued the transferable life skills graduates have more than their degrees.”
