Nowadays, students find it hard to study at universities compared to school studies. Why is this happening? What are the solutions to this problem?
Universities provide profound subjects in particular field to train people for their career. People are facing lots of hardships to complete their higher education and dropouts became common. There are several reasons for this trend which I intend to discuss in this essay in hope of suggesting appropriate measures to overcome this negative trend.
To begin with, there are a number of issues making today's student's university education tough. Most importantly, more new courses are introduced into higher studies. Though, youngsters are attracted towards these new courses, the limited seats became a hurdle for them. The very tough competition for seats leaves them in physical and mental agony. Another point is the high cost of education. Younger generation try to meet the educational expenses through educational loans and part time jobs. The hard jobs, heavy curriculum and lack of time management flattened them under pressure. Sometimes they feel, the degree holders remain unemployed and it is better to continue part time jobs as full time jobs and they leave their education. The assignments and projects are sometimes hard to finish on time. All these problems make the student's university study harder than their school days.
The solutions are not simple, but people can manage it and enjoy their studies as before. Firstly, parents and students should realize their strengths and limitations, and the skills needed to finish a course before choosing a course. Dedication and time management should be learnt by the students from their early life itself, which help them to mold their future life without mixing jobs with life or study. Parental support to their children in financial and academic problems like assisting them in a project work or assignment should also be encouraged. As governments are a powerful institute, they can make guidelines for curriculum in higher education and avoid overburden on these young minds. The grant or scholorships and on-campus jobs will provide financial support for them. Governments must either increase the seats of popular courses or approve new universities in both public and private sectors, to start the course.
In conclusion, it is undeniably true that the university education is harder than school studies and with personal, parental and government support and co-operation one can overcome this. Let's hope university students can enjoy their studies as their school days by these approaches.
