Half of UK’s young people feel pressured to go to uni, new FMB research reveals

Half of the UK’s 18-24 year olds felt pressurised to go to university. This problem has become more pronounced, with this age group having been four times more likely to experience pressure to study for a degree than +55 year olds, according to new research by the Federation of Master Builders (FMB). Key results from the FMB’s research into people’s attitudes about university include: • Half of 18-24 year olds felt pressurised by parents, teachers, friends, and/or society in general, to go to university

• The younger the generation, the more likely they were to have felt pressurised into attending university 12% of +55 year olds; 23% of 45-54 year olds; 30% of 35-44 year olds; 40% of 25-34 year olds; 50% of 18-24 year olds Commenting on the research, Brian Berry, Chief Executive of the FMB, said: “It is deeply concerning that half of the nation’s young people felt pressurised into going to university. Indeed, this new research shows a pattern: the younger the generation, the more likely they were to feel pressurised into studying for a degree. In the past, academic education was often favoured over vocational studies but this view was always questionable and is now outdated. With exam results having been published, we are urging students to give other career paths such as vocational training and apprenticeships serious consideration. A construction apprenticeship can lead to a fulfilling and rewarding career.
