Uni Applications Fall

Tuesday, November 06, 2012

Almost 44,000 less home students applied to study at UK universities for 2012 entry than did for 2011 entry,. Why is that? Recession? Increase in tuition fee? Obtaining a Uni degree is now less valued for?

    I can only speak for the US schools, and Florida universities at that, but our tuition rates are going up, up, up and a lot of students are finding that the kind of job you can get here with a non-specialized bachelor's degree (not engineering, nursing, accounting, or a degree needed for a specific job) or a degree outside of the STEM fields will not earn enough money to pay off the resultant student debt.

A friend of mine has over $40,000 in student debt, earned a psychology degree from a private school, and is waiting tables in our hometown.
