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. 

My time at university allowed me to mature, develop critical reasoning , and communication skills. These transferable skills have been invaluable.  

Their is no right or wrong answer, there have been equally successful individuals on both sides of the spectrum. Whatever path you choose, ask yourself "What will i gain from this?"
