University or flight school?

Hey guys,

Iím currently a year 12 student graduating at the end of this year, Iíve always had my sights set on becoming a commercial pilot and am looking to make that a reality over the coming years. However Iím a bit stuck for choice at the moment when deciding what pathway is best to take. Iíve thoroughly looked into a number of well known universities and their aviation courses ( Griffith, UNSW, Swinburne etc) and Iím just not sure I can fathom the 3-4 extra years of study. Would I be better off just starting a CPL course as soon as school finishes and looking to get straight into the workforce after that ? Or would the airlines prefer to see a degree ?

any help is appreciated,

thanks,

tommy
