Is Higher Education Necessary for Everyone?

Education is an important part of everyone’s life. Some people believe that getting higher education is crucial while others believe that one can easily do without it.

In my opinion, university education gives you a wider range of opportunities in your future life. It is common knowledge that students at universities do not study only professional subjects but also a variety of other basic ones which are compulsory for all kinds of specialists. Thus higher education broadens your outlook and horizons because you never know what may come in handy in the future. Moreover, higher education is more profound than technical (college) education and you can apply your knowledge more efficiently.

However, there are people who do not share this point of view. Firstly, higher education requires more energy, effort and time. Secondly, studying at university may be costly (especially abroad), although there are universities in most countries that do not charge any tuition fees. Thirdly, not everyone is capable of getting a higher education and very often people with practical skills are in great demand.

I am afraid that I cannot fully agree with the opposing opinion because I am convinced that you may succeed in life much faster and exploit your potential fully only in case you get a higher education. Besides, such specialists are normally better-paid.

In conclusion, I would like to emphasize the importance of getting higher education for those people who are ready to put much effort in it and who realize the importance of career advancement in the future.
