Unemployment is a painful dilemma of current time. We have fewer opportunities to work in a well-established company and for Government job as well. Each and every field now has higher criteria for a job regarding strong academic records and excellent qualification. No one can deny that the university degree holders have more bright future regarding professional field rather than less educated persons and I quite agree that university degree holders earn a great more money than that of without university degrees or certifications.
First, many research have been conducted on this phenomenon, which highly support the fact that university graduated get not only good opportunities for securing good jobs but also they also have good income packages as well. University education teaches problem solving skills for different contexts. It also makes them enable to learn and imply new knowledge and enhance their critical thinking by theory and practical work. They can quickly and easily adopt themselves for the new job positions and they bring many innovation. They also learn multitasking approach, and can control any situation with the similar context by applying similar techniques. All these attributes distinguish them from less educated person, and they find better job options.
Now the question arises ‘should a student pay full cost of university education?’ and the answer to the question is, it should not be in state owned universities. For example the competition among university students has increased to a higher level as the top scorers and gold medalists find prestigious jobs quickly rather than average students. There are some university degree holders who are still unemployed and waiting for the fortune to open its door for them. I believe education, be it in university level, is a fundamental right of people and the government should make sure the country is offering quality education to the most deserving candidates. If education becomes all about money, talented students would not be able to finish university education as rich kids will get admission with their father’s money. However, private universities have a different scenario as they have to support all the financial factors of a university, students in private universities should be pay.
In summary, university education is important in the long run for development of a nation. Each and every person of a country should be educated, and there is no denying that university graduates earn more money than less educated employees. Finally education is a basic need and should be free unless they are not funded privately.
