A survey has revealed that 82% of school leavers not planning to go to university don’t think a university career is necessary to help them follow their ambitions of setting up their own business.
The Training Room asked a total of 1,300 school leavers for their thoughts on their career path choices. Of those asked, 82% of those not planning to go to university were still aiming to set up their own businesses one day. Almost two-thirds (62%) stated that they didn’t think that having a degree would mean they would earn more money in the long term.
The survey also revealed that almost three quarters (70%) of those asked also believe that going straight into work and gaining experience on the job will stand them in better stead for a top career than if they were to earn a degree first.
