A university Degree in this day and age is little more than a til receipt for the tuition fees.
University was once something reserved for those who showed academic potential, but in the past decade or so the job market has been gear towards graduate degree schemes. Once vocational colleges taught many of the subjects that are now taught in universities at a greater expense to the student. But lest we forget that we are conditioned now to accept that a degree is the only path to educational success. And with all the Graduate job placement schemes we have no choice, it is the job market that dictates and if universities produce quality then it has to be paid for. The 'higher education for all' mentality is destroying a once revered institution. Real experience has been superseded by a relatively worthless piece of paper and look how industry in the west has begun a slow painful death.
Producing workers rather than thinkers at an increasing cost to the individual is the new
method of social control and economic policing; debt, credit cards and unattainable idea's of lifestyle choices. University is an important institution for different reasons in contemporary society. http://www.timesonline.co.uk/tol/life_and_style/education/article6910226.ece
