Клековкина Е., Манн
Comment on the following statement:
| Many young people go to university after leaving school. However, a number of school-leavers feel that university is not for them and choose not to go. |
What is your opinion? Do you agree with this statement?
Some people think that university is the place to go after school, whereas others feel it is not for them.
I think there is no downside to going to university. First of all, the knowledge one could obtain there can help him get a good job in the future. It helps one get a better understanding of how things work in life and our society. Secondly, some of the best friendships start at universities. Some people meet there their future husbands and wives there. Oftentimes, as people get older they think of their university years as the best time of their life.
At the same time, there are people who do not believe they are cut out for university. Some of them just can not get there because of their poor performance at school, others already know what they want to do in life and they don’t believe they need university for it.
In my opinion these people have a point. At the same time, even though it is great to know what one wants to do early in life, things may not work out the way one plans, and having a university degree would give one more options and a Plan-B. I truly believe everyone could get to university if they really set their mind to it. People should not give up so easily.
In conclusion, I would like to say that one can have a good, happy life regardless of whether one goes to university or not. However, university just might make it a little bit easier.
