Did You Know? – Benefits of Your University Degree

A recent issue of the Times Colonist has an article about how university graduates in BC weathered the downturn better than those who hadn’t graduated. Only five years after graduating, those students who graduated at the start of the recession in 2008 had an unemployment rate of only 4.7% where the national average was 6.6%, and over 95% of those students were employed in jobs that required their degree. Even the much maligned Arts and Sciences degree had better unemployment rates.
