    It is not incorrect (nor is it an idiom) but it is a bit wordy. How I would say it:

    The only reason I want to go to university is to get a good job in the future.

    It is also a bit sad, if that is the case, because the experience itself is beneficial. So, how I would say it.

    The main reason I want to go to university is to get a good job in the future.

    You could improve the last bit - The main reason I want to go to university is to start a good career.
