I think that it is very important to go to university after school. First of all, the knowledge one could obtain there can help him or her to get a good job in the future. It helps one get a better understanding of how things work in life and society. Secondly, some of the best friendships start at universities. Some people meet their future husbands and wives there. Oftentimes, as people get older they think of their university years as the best times 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 do not believe they need university for it.

Well, even though it is great to know what a person wants to do early in life, things may not work out the way he or she plans, and having a university degree would give them 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 and happy life regardless of whether they go to university or not. However, I strongly believe that having a university degree might make their lives much easier and interesting. Thus, I am sure that a person should have a higher education whenever possible.


In conclusionI would like to say that there are opposing views on this issue. At first sight going to university is a big waste of time and money but in actual fact studying in university gives students a lot of opportunities for getting good jobs. Thus, I strongly believe that attending university is worth doing.
