    Default uni or tafe?

    I think I hate uni. I much prefer the tafe system. Does anyone else feel the same?

    My husband felt the same way. I don't start my uni degree until next year but have spent this year at uni getting an ATAR to get in to my course. It's been a rollercoaster ride that's for sure. Can't say I hate it though.

    I hate essays, reports and don't get me started on referencing with a passion. But I feel uni opens up more job opportunities with better pay. Jmo

    Summerly, being a voc ed trainer I am biased but I think the skills learned in TAFE and college courses are far more transferable than those taught in universities. There are also far more students enrolled in uni meaning less time with teachers and less available jobs in the market.
