Hello, might want to ask yourself these 2 questions. 1. Which degree are you looking to get? Will other alternative professional qualifications suffice in an employer's pov? Some industry might have a stronger preference for qualifications (PMETs) but at the same time, there are certain professional qualifications (e.g. Google Data Analytics or AWS cloud practioners, ACCA for accountants, and the list goes on) that companies are looking out for, especially in specialised tracks. 2. What are other opportunity costs/ benefits with enrolling in university One trade off with getting a degree is perhaps the time spent studying on theory could be used otherwise to gain practical experiences or climbing up the corporate ladder for those structured jobs Also, another important consideration, might be the value of the potential networks you meet during your degree studies. Often, there may be seniors, mentors and even career offices at university that will help guide you to finding a more aligned job next time (and perhaps with a higher pay) If you are financially ok, (perhaps without having to make ends meet/ under any constraints), maybe an investment in urself for a higher pay check moving on for ur next 30-40 years of employment would be worth ... but always get in touch with those in your industry to better appreciate the pay progression better!
