Also quite a few employers say "does he have a degree in anything".
If so, you get a better chance than if you don't.
Especially if you go for a job with a corporation rather than a small
business.
In the case of small business, they usually don't care if you have a degree
or not. With corporations, a degree is seen as the person having some
commitment to what they are doing.

Try for a part time degree. It will take longer but you can work at the same
time.

You could take a year off Uni (like I did) and try taking on a couple of
short term contracts to build up your finances and experience.
