So should you or not.
My simple answer is not and here is why.
Theory vs Practice
When you go to university what they teach you most of the time is theory. Lots of learning, writing and tests. However what they often don´t teach in university is appling that theory in practice. That´s why so many students finish university, but they have really no practical experience and don´t know how to manage real job.
Can´t Find A Job?
This is linked to finding a job. Most employers want experience in at the field in the first place. Of course education is important, but often for most jobs high school diploma is enough. After you finish university you pretty much gonna have education, but no work experience, therefore you not gonna find a job that easy.
Course vs University
If you start working at the lower paid job that you would like such as fitness instructor or something, in 5 years you can be a manager of the fitness center. However if you just study fitness degree after 5 years you will probably start again as a fitness instructor too.
Too Many Students Not Enough Experience
That is simply because there are far too many students these days. University is a plus, but what employers care more about is practical work experience in the field. How can you get it - either start working at the lower paid job or do some course. Instructor courses are the best. They usually also offer you a job at the end not like university.
Instructor courses are like short term university, however you also apply the knowledge into practice. There are lots of courses you can choose from out there and they will help you more to find a job than university. Some people will argue that with university you can get much better job and earn more money than with a course.
University Doesn´t Mean High Paid Job Straight Away
I know many graduates either masters or bachelors who are working in Mc Donalds. Simply because it´s not like students are imagining. They imagine that straight after university they will sit in a chair in an office earning lots of money by typiying something on computer. However employers don´t look at education, they look at experience and qualifications (courses).
Loans And Time Wasted
Also for uni you have to pay much more and spend years doing it, while courses cost much less and are done in short time. Most students get financial loan and then after uni half of their salary goes to repayment. Also university students often fail because it´s just too much time studying something boring. And then they have to pay more plus spending more time studying, instead of already having some realy experience.
So there you go, do courses instead of uni, don´t waste valuable years of your life studying something that you are not gonna like. 80% of students admit that what they study is boring, even if it is something they are interested in. Because the system is set up on theory and stuff that is useful only for society, not for individuals.
