This paper focuses on reasons as to why not all students should get the four years bachelor’s degree and offers alternatives to these programs. Having a college degree increases one’s job prospects, but with increased number of graduates there is no guarantee that money spent is worth it. In essence, having university education for all simply seeks to churn out more graduates without focusing on the economic fundamentals and cost implications of college education. Mounting debt burdens on graduates is a cause of concern because this impacts negatively on their financial stability. The promise of a well paying job is not guaranteed meaning that for some students it would be better to engage in vocational areas.
