I would say that University is a GOOD option right now. A lot of people have said "I just finished university and now can't find a job", hell, I'M one of those people. The thing is, the UK is in the biggest recession for decades, and men between 16-24 have the worst job prospects they have ever had. Ducking into University now means that in 3-5 years time, hopefully the recession will have faded, allowing the graduates to enter the job market properly.
Hell, when I went to Uni in 05, the job market was excellent for graduates. Now it all goes to hell a few months before I graduated. Now it's the opposite situation, the only way the market can go from here is up.
If it's something you want to do, then do it. Regardless of financial implications you should always try to follow your dreams, else before you know it you'll be a 50 year old staring at the ever-approaching threat of retirement and wondering just what the fuck happened to your life.
90% of people think they are above average.
