Comments on: Is the cost of university too high? http://blogs.reuters.com/uknews/2009/08/19/is-the-cost-of-university-too-high/ Insights from the UK and beyond Tue, 15 Nov 2016 20:30:03 +0000 hourly 1 http://wordpress.org/?v=4.2.5 By: harry http://blogs.reuters.com/uknews/2009/08/19/is-the-cost-of-university-too-high/comment-page-1/#comment-10506 Thu, 20 Aug 2009 09:50:59 +0000 http://blogs.reuters.com/uknews/?p=3786#comment-10506 Education is essential and good for individual, industry and the country. The industry and government should perhaps have a fund to subsidise courses more in demand by the industry/society so that students can opt for such courses with lower final debt at the expense of a bit of personal interests

As well as the economic benefit in terms of salary etc, you get 3-4 years living away from home with your mates and all the experiences you get. Overall a bargain at £20-£25K. So yes, economic and social benefits far exceed almost any costs and kids should be encouraged despite the debts. You get one chance in life, so please take it. And yes I am an ex student, so am speaking from experience.

It will pay off in the future. Much better to spend the money and get a well-rounded education than to be idle. An education provides more than just marketability. It provides confidence and a better quality of life: education for the sake of education.
