Where to go
After graduating from a secondary school - a school or a gymnasium, graduates have a difficult choice: where should they go to study? The decision may depend on many factors: academic performance, selected exam, the availability of funds to study for a fee, and, of course, the specialty that they plan to receive in the end. In order to make the right decision, in no case should one choose an educational institution and profession spontaneously. Study the booklets and leaflets, visit the open doors, traditionally held in the spring by all universities and colleges, explore the labor market and sort out your preferences and desires. It is very useful to pass the tests for professional orientation, which can be found on the Internet.
First of all, it is necessary to choose between secondary special and higher education. The first will give you a working profession after just a couple of years, besides, it does not require such high scores of final exams. On the other hand, the presence of higher education gives a certain prestige, becoming a pass to higher positions, and university diplomas are valued by employers much higher.However, if you don’t feel sorry for the time for self-development, you can easily get a secondary special education in a particular specialty, and then continue your studies at the institute. This will give you an idea of the future activities of the studied disciplines, besides you will have the opportunity to get work experience and understand how it suits you.
If you definitely decided to enter a university, you should understand in advance what kind of specialty you want to study. In addition to the huge number of humanitarian and technical areas there is also medicine, veterinary medicine, agriculture. To make it easier to choose a faculty and specialty, try to imagine your life and career in a year, two, ten after graduation. Answer yourself the question, who do you want to be in the finals of your career? Consider that in most of the higher education institutions in the first year, general subjects are mainly studied, so you will have the opportunity to change the specialty or even the faculty, subject to availability or for a fee.
Actually the choice of an educational institution must be made not only on the basis of a passing score for the required specialty,but also taking into account its reputation, educational and material base, the possibility of research activities and postgraduate education. As a rule, public universities are listed above commercial, but there are exceptions. You should not study the humanities in a technical university and vice versa. Finally, if the university most suitable for you is in another city, you should not be afraid of it: after all, it is in the hostel that you can fully experience the beauty of student life.
