Is a degree actually worth it?

Hello guys, I have finished my education in my native country (Romania). I have a B.A. and M.A. in geography and I can say that about 30-40% of what I have learned is somewhat related to surveying. Unfortunately the school system is also not very good in Romania (school can be quite expensive and the quality is not as good as it used to be), so I have decided to move here in the U.K.My only problem is that a degree here is about 20.000 pounds (that is how much I have to pay for a level 7…See More

"Well, yes & no. You could go on to get a PHD in something like geodetic science. You could also get a dual degree. There are a number of surveyors out there that are a member of the Bar & practice law."

"i don't want to get everyone all worked up here, but for anyone to say you don't need a higher education for the engineering and surveying fields is fooling everyone including themselves."

"As mentioned above, it would definitely be worth having a talk with RICS as, even if you went to the expense and trouble of obtaining another degree the RICS qualification - i.e. Chartered Land Surveyor - is the highest you can aspire to (at least…"

"In Romania I can use my degree to become a surveying technician. It is mostly about getting into the job. The problem is that here in the U.K. the educational system is also stiff but not as stiff as in my native country. If I can get my foot in the…"

"Octavian, I am not sure how to equate the education you already have to the system I am familiar with here. The biggest hurtle for us is a BS degree. Once you have that, the only thing that limits how far you can go is your ability. It does not have…"

"Good advice. I appreciate the effort. In fact I only need 26 months of work to pay for my Postgraduate Diploma (I do not need a masters it is way too expensive, a postgrad diploma is enough to get my foot in the door anyway). Right now I am in this…"

"I agree... the idea is to get into the job and work for a year or two. After 1.5 years of work I can at least cover 50% of the cost for a university degree but spending 3 years in the warehouse just to get a degree (considering that already have a…"

"Fundamentally it all boils down to where precisely you want your career to take you. In simple terms it is not necessary to spend so much time in higher education, chasing degrees in order to work as a land surveyor. I spent four years, studying 1…"

"I agree but the idea is to get in the job and go for a high end degree after one or 2 years in the industry. However I do agree with your arguments. Thank you."
