  76. 76. The benefits of HE LearnersAccording to Directgov UK:•Higher education benefits you in a number of ways.•University or college lets you experience a rich cultural and social scene,meeting a variety of people while studying something you love•On average, graduates tend to earn substantially more than people with Alevels who did not go to university. Projected over a working lifetime, thedifference is something like £100,000 before tax at today’s valuation
  77. 77. The benefits of HE Learners• Higher education develops qualities that are valued by employers, such as problem-solving and communication skills.
