    My partner went to university and now she's a swim teacher. She wishes she hadn't bothered with university.

    On the flip side a degree has been a prerequisite for every job I've had/applied for after university. I'd be nowhere without it.

    Increasingly I'm seeing companies break the mould when it comes to IT. Qualifications are becoming less important, with portfolios starting to take centre stage. Wouldn't you agree?

    It would hugely depend what field you want to go into within IT, for example if you want to get into helpdesk, network, etc then portfolio isn't going to be any use. If you're more interested in the likes of web design then portfolio would probably be more useful.

    Yeah that's true. Although project work could help you get into networking. Help desk is probably an exception.

    yeah for sure im in field services so i drive around all day to different sites and replace a motherboard or battery etc so simple for someone to pick up. I still dont know alot of stuff and its a lot of figuring it out for yourself which is the best way to learn.

    I never really focused in school so uni never crossed my mind. Failed all my gcses but I have a little nvq in travel and tourism. I'm a scaffolder now.

    Despite being at University, at current times I don't actually need a degree - if I didn't bother with uni I will no doubt have joined the Army. To this day I have always wondered where my life would be if I went down that path.
