Going to university isn't for everyone and it's not the only route towards landing your dream job

These 11 top jobs don't require a degree - and pay up to £100,000

Going to university isn't for everyone and it's not the only route towards landing your dream job.

There are plenty of alternative routes into careers if you don't fancy another three years of study, with more opportunities arising thanks to a growing number of apprenticeships which offer professional training.

Now three in four UK businesses believe more young people will choose earn-as-you-learn routes in the next five years. Here are 11 of the top jobs you can do without a degree and what they pay.
