    No, but sometimes a university degree implies an education. For the many who are incapable of self-education (which is arguably what all true education is), university can provide a bit of the impetus and focus.

    University van encourage education, then, but a university degree does not equal an education.

    Does that help?

    It is very common to find out exactly how irrelevant some degrees are when it is time to roll up the sleeves and apply practical knowledge to a real life situation.  I have no formal education yet I have a depth of practical experience that could not have been achieved in the time it takes to 'gain an education!'

    A university degree shows that the person who has gained the degree has the ability to learn and has learned in the topic of his/her degree.
    An education, is an overall collection of knowledge gained over time.
    So I would say "no" in answer to your question. Only my opinion though!

    It depends. If you want a job where a piece of paper qualifies you for the job then sure otherwise it may not!
