To go to university (and have no money, but plenty of spare time) or work (and enjoy the cash-flow coming in). Something a lot of graduates find asking themselves.
Having asked this question myself, I went down the Degree path. It is an aspect that I personally haven't regretted, it opened up the door to what I do now. But is it as valuable as this article suggests.
