No degree? No problem! We’ve got the highest paying jobs in the UK without a degree.
A-level results day has been and gone. Relieved? Absolutely.
And no matter how you spent the day, it’s an achievement for all. Years of education is no easy feat.
But, for many of us, our dreams don’t include universities or apprenticeships (regardless of the grades we achieved). Some of us want to get straight into earning money, but in a world where degrees used to hold high value, do you really need one to get a high paying job in the UK?
The answer is: no.
There are plenty of high-paying jobs in the UK where you don’t need a degree or to have racked up thousands in student debt.
An online learning platform analysed 2,000 UK vacancies to find the industries where you can expect to earn over £42,000 without getting into student debt — and a lot of them you can do from home! Bonus.
