It depends on what you want to do in life - if you know & need it, then you should consider it. If you don't, I generally suggest getting an apprenticeship or some work experience first. University is a huge cost, you don't want to be doing just for the sake of having a degree to your name. Even then, most universities are still not worth it as you can learn the same materials online if you need to. As a general rule of thumb, I don't recommend going to a university outside of the top 20 or 30 in the country. However, if you get into one of the top 20 or 30 - it may definitely be worth your time & money. This is based on actual learning to help you in life, university brand on your CV, and generally giving you a leg up in life.

I am an art and English tutor, my approach is fun but educational !

Hi, It is up to you , your choice. If you are doing s practical subject such as law, medicine,archeology I suggest going . But if you are more creative you could set up business or become a freelancer. I suggest talking it through with friends, family members to see if it suits you. Read prospectuses and make a pro vs cons list . This will help to decide what's best.

It depends. Why are you considering it? To learn or to enhance your career options? Do you know what you want to do? If it's a course like medicine where you need a degree - yes of course! Otherwise, are there alternatives like higher apprenticeships available? Often these allow you to work (get paid), & study free (they pay your university fees). Compare this with being at least Β£27k in debt without 3 years experience under your belt if you went to university. In my opinion this is a much better deal, unless you get into a top 20 university. A top 20 university provides you with the opportunities & CV credibility to work your way much higher in society.
