Traditional wisdom would have it that the next logical step after completing high school is to choose a profession, study a relevant 4-year degree at university, land a job in that profession, and stay in that job until retirement.
Not a bad plan. Or, at least it was.
Times have changed dramatically. Today, there are more reasons than ever to choose the college route to study shorter, more employment-focused programs, before jumping into the job market or advancing your academics in university.
Let’s look at a few of these reasons.
Get More Bang for Your Buck.
For many, the traditional 4-year university degree is prohibitively expensive.
Not only that, if you decide after year one or two, that university is not for you, you may end up with no credentials at all for your hard work. No one wants to be called a university drop-out.
Going to college is less expensive and you will receive a credential after only year one or two upon successful completion of your program. There are also no fluffy courses. You dive right into the subject matter relating to your program of study.

Signing up for college first doesn’t mean ruling out that 4-year degree.
