This piece in The Telegraph by Eleanor Doughty echoes our view that you need more than a degree to make yourself job-ready and we hope we’re helping with that. She recommends developing soft skills. We would add that confidence, built on broader general knowledge and sensible analysis, equips you well for a great career.
You might also be interested in the view from Sonia Sodha in the Observer, which I guess Eleanor Doughty is referring to: “It’s time to reinvent what universities can be – Our higher learning model requires restructuring to ensure that students are equipped for work”.
Do you feel the only point of university is to lead you directly into a job?
