The nuts and bolts Why university is important

The argument for university might seem obvious but it is worth restating. A university degree improves career prospects and earning potential. On average, people with higher education qualifications earn more over their working lives than non-graduates. Going to university can give graduates a head start with transferable skills valued by employers such as the ability to work with others, critical and analytical thinking, research skills, problem-solving and communication skills. These skills, together with an academic qualification, offer graduates an advantage in the fast-changing world of employment.
