There are lots of reasons to study at university. A university degree challenges you to learn, helps you build great professional networks, and gives you the chance to make lifelong friends. Having a degree will also enhance your employment and salary prospects:
- The GCA Grad Stats Survey (2015) reported that nearly 70% of bachelor degree graduates find work within 4 months of graduating
- In the Grattan HILDA Study (2015), it was reported that the average starting salary for bachelor degree graduates is $54,000
Graduates of a technology uni like UTS gain also a lifetime income advantage (Grattan HILDA Study, 2015).
