Sarah Clover, sales and marketing director at notgoingtouni, said that many graduates have been "let down" by careers advice services which have either failed to prepare them for the world of work or have steered them in the wrong vocational direction.
She claimed that it may be a wise idea for certain young people to consider an apprenticeship placement or a role where they can learn as they work and still get paid.
"Apprenticeships and other kinds of vocational training really are great alternatives to university, because you get paid while you are learning, there is a good chance you'll get a job at the end of it and you haven't got any debt," Ms Clover explained.
Last week, data published in the national ICM Omnibus poll showed that 66 per cent of people are thinking more positively about the value of vocational learning due to the projected rise in tuition fees.
