“University isn’t for everyone. This simple fact is all too often lost amid the frenzy of open days, application deadlines, and being told that uni will be the time of your life. Unless you’re one of the lucky ones, the chances are you don’t really know what you want to do with your life after school. I certainly didn’t. When I applied for university six years ago, I did it because it was the expected thing for me to do after A-levels, because all my friends were doing it, because it seemed like the best path to a good job.”
