The main issue ultimately behind pursuing a qualification in higher education is that most students lack the advice and guidance they need to allow them to make a more informed and suitable choice regarding their future goals. This is imperative before investing their time and money in any course.
But the downside of students who choose the online path is that they risk losing the opportunity of experiencing true university life and face-to-face teaching by their lecturers.
However, as the entry-level salaries for graduates are shrinking, acquiring a higher education online is becoming a more popular option amongst students. This is due to the fact that it is more cost-effective; as there are no living costs and the fees are considerably cheaper.
But the question still remains. Is pursuing a higher education really worth it? According to most students within the UK, they have admitted that a university degree is ultimately worth investing in, simply due to the raw fact that graduates are in fact proven statistically to earn more than those who hold only a high school diploma. To put this into perspective, it was found in the US that individuals between the ages of 25 and 32 tend to earn $17,500 more annually than those without a degree, according to the think tank- Pew Research Centre.
Creative subjects like art may indeed nourish your soul but it can also flatten your wallet, with no guarantee of finding a well-paid job after your studies due to the high-level competition faced within the art industry. So it is always worth considering the type of degree you wish to pursue and checking to see if it will lead to a stable career before you make a final decision.
Having mentioned the above, it is worth recognising that there are many caveats to prove that investing time and money to certain degrees is deemed more valuable in the long run compared to others.
For example, studying an Engineering degree is a good option regardless
of where you gain the qualification from. The chances of employment are much higher for those who choose to pursue a “hard” degree as that will guarantee a higher-paid job.
The burden is heavy for many, as students start to realise how a bad choice in the type of degree chosen, can affect their future. For this, they will need more transparency and guidance from universities and other external organisations.
Due to the increase in tuition fees, many students graduate with a considerable amount of debt. And those who receive a student loan prior to starting their degrees end up spending many years returning the entire amount. The current student debt has grown so large in regions like the US and the UK, that the ability to even buy a house is near to impossible.
Unfortunately, the cost of university for students has risen in many countries. In the US the price of tuition fees has increased by almost five times the rate of inflation since 1983. Similarly in the UK, the fees were abruptly increased by the thousands according to
Some degrees pay for themselves and some do not, but this can vary between countries depending on the type of degree and finance involved.
With the financial crisis striking in many countries, countless students are left facing an uncertain future. They are left to simply pay their way through the numerous years of higher education with no promised returns.
Many a time we ask ourselves is gaining a higher education really worth the struggle? Not only do we invest our time and money, but we also invest an immense level of our faith into it and are sometimes left feeling ambivalent about the future.
