Default Re: Student Loan debt

It's not essential to go to a university to study. If you love your subject enough, you can do the studying with just books and the internet. There are many good, currently free, courses available on-line. I've done some of the Coursera ones: I think if you completed a portfolio of perhaps twenty such courses in related fields then you would have studied a subject to at least degree level - probably higher.

You wouldn't have the piece of paper saying you have a degree, but you wouldn't have the debt either - and I suspect that at least some potential employers would appreciate your initiative and might be prepared to give you a chance instead of one of the usual suspects churned out by the traditional higher education mill.
