If you’re unsure whether to start looking at courses you want to do or jobs you’d like to have in later life and don’t know whether to go to uni or not, then look no further. University is one of the final steps in education and arguably the best thing you could ever do.
It Teaches You Life Skills
By going to Uni, you are learning so much more than the subject you are studying, it will teach you so many life skills and social skills, due to new situations that you wouldn’t of been exposed to in any other circumstances.
It Teaches You About Yourself
Uni can be tough at times but also amazing and these highs and lows will help you learn a little more about yourself as a person. Meeting different people or being in new places might teach you more about who you are or inspire you to be like someone.
Learning A New City
University is a great excuse to move to the completely other side of the country and start fresh! This means learning a new city and area whilst also having the perks of half living in your home town too; making this technically the best of both worlds.
Mixing With Unlikely People
Uni is so different to school and colleges, you will meet tons of different people of all ages and all walks of life. This means your social circles will grow hugely and you might even adjust your mindset or preconceptions of people based on the cool people you’ve got to know at Uni.
Degree Is A Necessity
Nowadays, a lot of jobs require some form of higher education with a degree being seen as a desirable qualification level. Once more, if you have a degree you will look like a much stronger candidate for any position so by going to Uni you are helping yourself get the best job for you.
If you can pick yourself up, carry on and stick at it for the full course then you will be showing huge amounts of resilience to persevere and achieve. This is a super admirable skill and Uni is a great way to learn and build it.
Put Yourself First
By going to Uni, you are doing something for you and for your life in order to get to where you want to be. If you’re someone that always puts people before themselves, then see this as the much-needed chance for you to do something for yourself for once.
Gives You An ‘I Can’ Attitude
A lot of people very much have a I can’t attitude and by going to Uni you’ll have no choice but to take the can’t away and swap it out for a can! Uni is the highest form of further education to enrol in, so that alone is impressive if someone can get themselves to that level.
Uni challenges everyone at some point along the way, perhaps more so for some and this is a brilliant thing. Why? Because it will help you learn who you are and mostly it’ll teach you that you can overcome anything, no matter how the big the challenge is in order to achieve the final goal.
Helps You Leave Home
Mostly, Uni is a brilliant way to fly the nest and help you transition to taking that first step into the real world. It can be hard to leave home if you are working and trying to save but by going to Uni, it is a more easy transition – plus halls and student accommodation is the best fun you’ll ever have!
