The important question is what type of work do you want to do in life? Work backwards from there and see whether a degree is needed. There are certain roles off the top of my head that doesn't require a degree:

  • Cabin Crew

  • Insurance Agent

  • Property Agent

  • Army/Police

You can also try applying to companies. Progression tends to be faster with Private companies. Government related companies are very strict on pay and rank based on your education.

Like what Shania said, you can just start working with your diploma.

However, there are now more university courses that are more hands on, think like poly. SIT has a good number of these courses where you get an industry attachment as part of the curriculum. So you may want to look at that to expand your options to make a decision that fits you best.

Good luck.

Hey Anon!

If university isn't your cup of tea, you can consider getting a job right away after your diploma! You can enter an industry related to your field of study or any other industry that might interest you. I think learning on the job and picking up skills with a more hands on approach would be more beneficial to you compared to learning in university. Do note that you may experience a lower starting pay compared to your peers who do get a degree. However, with the skills you have acquired, you won't fall short. All the best!
