Is University Right For You?

Updated on June 16, 2012

Growing up you've probably heard a countless number of people tell you that the most sure way of succeeding in life is by enrolling in university and getting yourself a degree. However, now that it's actually time for you to select the university you feel is a match for you, you are probably asking yourself, is university right for you?

Well, here are a couple of reasons why university is still a good route for you to follow.

Interacting With People

Universities are convergence point for a lot people coming from different backgrounds and who show a variety of interests in different things. By becoming part of such a diverse community, you will learn a lot about others and where they come from. With the world becoming more of a global village rather than a few continents separated by miles of water, people are beginning to look outside their immediate surroundings for a different experience be it in employment or world travel. Either way, university prepares you for the world out there.

A Birthplace for Creativity

It is usually at the university level than in any other place that a lot of opportunities present themselves. For young creative individuals, this is a great place to turn creative ideas into great innovations. Think about Mark Zuckerberg, Bill Gates and a host of other people who were able to turn their ideas into great successes.

Some of these great opportunities present themselves through activities such as seminars, parties, student businesses and club activities. In these, university students get an opportunity to freelance and monetize their time while still enrolled in school.

Choose Your Own Route

Unlike in other institutions of learning where you have everything predetermined, at university you get to determine what classes to take. University gives you a freedom that you have never experienced before.

Be Independant

Most people starting university have lived their whole lives in a family home with their parents. University is great chance to get out into the real world and have some independance. It's a real feeling of freedom.


Go to university and take your education to the next level, it's an experience you'll never forget...
