Going to university is a different experience for different people, and I think everyone who goes gets something out of it - even if they don’t ultimately graduate or whatever.

I was only 17 when I headed off to Heriot-Watt University in Edinburgh, and a pretty immature 17 year-old at that. In hindsight I was far too young to be going but I had finished my time at school and it seemed like the next step - I never really thought much about it or what I would do when I left, all my friends were going so I just followed suit.
