University education has been the talks for many years as the route to a better career and pride in various fields when one study to higher heights. But thing are changing these and to be fair according to sampled opinion from different countries in the Europe, interest in university education and careers is dying.

In places such as Britain, with the government there increasing the cost of attaining a degree to go over the roof,  much negative rhetoric in the press of that country is putting a dent on university education in that country.
As well as the difficulties of politician and the education policy makers to design a proper sustainable and affordable educational model, many people working in the sector are beginning to loose interest in the sector.


In Finland, over 60 percent of the graduate union members have been considering leaving the academic world, according to a new survey.

Especially for researchers who are younger than 50 years, the desire to leave the university environment is strong. A full 70 percent of the members in that age group has in the past two years considered changing careers.

Women are also more inclined to want to run away. According to the survey, women are more often employed in temporary positions and may also receive lower wages.

1837 or 28 percent responded to the survey in which the Finnish Graduate Association carried out within it members to gauge the atmosphere within the academic area as a place to purse and maintain a career.
