    Posted by isha on June 28, 2022 at 8:56 PM

    Some people believe the aim of university education is to help graduates get better jobs. Others believe there are much wider benefits of university education for both individuals and society.

    Discuss both views and give your opinion.

    One goes to university not only for getting a better job but also receives much more diverse knowledge and skills that benefits them and the society as a whole. This essay below will illustrate both the views, where one can see it as a place for getting good jobs for graduates and also as place for gaining variety of other benefits which as a matter of fact, I agree.

    Generally, universities are considered for getting a better job among graduates. At the end of the graduation, a graduate’s aim is to get placed in a well reputed company for which he/she has worked hard towards achieving it. It is believed that one cannot a better job or salary without graduating, which drives the sole intention of the students towards it.

    However, when looked from a different perspective, university education also provides a platform for students to explore their hidden talents, which may not be limited only to academics but also to various other areas. It is also evidenced that; companies get attracted to candidates with diverse skills and talents than one focusing exceptionally only on academics. . Job-Fairs,
    cultural events and programs organised within the universities also helps in building a strong social relationships and moral values which benefits the students later to become a part of a healthy society. Organising these types of co-circular activities also help them to generate more contacts which ultimately strengthen their social network, making their job-hunting process much easier.

    To summarise, I believe that passing out from university has much more advantages added to a student’s life, rather than having the perception of only getting a better job.

    There is a general belief among people that the main purpose of higher education is for getting graduates employment worthy and there are other who believe that under graduate and post graduate programs serves a higher purpose than minting out people with professional knowledge. This essay would take a peek at both these arguments. I would be also expressing my view on the subject in this essay.
    Firstly the argument that university education helps to produce employable candidates is very much true in the sense that many of the skills required for pursuing a job could only be attained from university education. This can be proved correct if we are looking at professional courses such as engineering, paramedical etc. but it should be noted that this is a just a subset of all the educational possibilities that is pursued by students.

    I would like to agree more with the notion that a campus style education serves an alternate purpose , that is molding the next generation. The age at which people usually pursue university education is a stage where they define their values. University education facilitate rapid idea transfers among the individuals that helps to reshape and progress the society. This is visible to us if we examine how views on subjects such as LGBTQ movement has changed rapidly. I would strongly argue that these changes are direct result of activism promoted in the campus.

    To summarize this essay the statement that describes how university education helps graduates to get better jobs is very accurate however, the idea that education under these programs a lot more is gained for the betterment of society is more correct. Today’s youth is tomorrow’s society. Thus for proper nurturing of our new generation higher education that is based on a university is beneficial.
