Why University?

A university education can expand your career options and employment opportunities, increase your earnings and provide you the satisfaction of pursuing a field of study that aligns with your interests. Studies show that higher education is associated with higher income, greater savings and assets, and better income during retirement. Federal statistics show the following on obtaining a university degree.

On average, university graduates:

  • Make close to double the income of those with a high school education, and 40% more than those with a trade certificate or a college diploma
  • Have higher net assets than those who complete high school or college (around $240,000 for university graduates, compared to $171,000 for college/trades, and $120,000 for high school grads)
