Universities are free in Germany because they reckonize the net positive to society. In the UK, saying vocational training is a "route to success" is the first step to charging people for it. If there's an opportunity for a profit, it must be exploited. After all, that was what was behind the "bin men shouldn't have to pay to educate doctors" guff said in support of university tuition fees.

Can you please get iplayer sorted out, BBC! I don't want to have to sign in afresh EVERY time I use it. After a few days of this rigmarole, it's starting to irritate. Removed
Not very long ago the Uni in Nottingham offered degrees in history of.....heavy metal.
I'd rather be a street sweeper head banging to the " Painkiller", meshing with my broom.
Most of degrees are useless. Unis create pseudo elites of pseudo intellectuals.
Mentality, class obsessed society in UK need to change. Not looking down on people without a degree would be a good start.

Great story, if it were true. You weren't there, and the teacher didn't sneer ate him. He would be making sure he was aware of all his options before he made a decision.

Lots of parents and kids when they are older like to say "Oh nobody told me about this or that when I was at school"

My lad wanted to be a carpenter & joiner. "Oh no" the teacher sneered, "You should go to university, not get a manual job". He ignored them and got an apprenticeship.

The night before his 22nd birthday he moved into his own 3-bed house, having saved a £30,000 deposit and got his mortgage.

Kids (most) do not need to go to 'Uni'.

You can blame Tony Blair and the loony left for dumbing down the degree.

Everything Labour do is to drag the top down to the bottom and not enspire people to achieve.
It's inspire, not enspire.
Maybe you should have concentrated a bit harder at school instead of shaving your head and daubing your body in George Cross tattoos, British Bulldog
