Quality Higher Education for Students in Kuwait
Thursday, March 18, 2010
"What is the importance of higher Education?" Many students and parents have asked this question to themselves as well as to their friends and family. With many students harboring the desire to start earning straightaway after their school so that they can live independent, unrestricted lives, this dilemma is bound to occur. Why should we go to college? What difference will it make to our lives?
Firstly, with the job market becoming more competitive every day, higher education offers graduates more jobs to choose from than are open to those who do not pursue education beyond high school, and graduates typically earn more than non-graduates.
Secondly, higher education improves an individual's quality of life. Studies show that, compared to high school graduates, college graduates have longer life spans, better access to health care, better dietary and health practices, greater economic stability and security, more prestigious employment and greater job satisfaction, less dependency on government assistance, greater community service and leadership, more volunteer work, more self-confidence, and less criminal activity and incarceration.
Higher education, theoretically, will also enable individuals to expand their knowledge and skills, express their thoughts clearly in speech and in writing, grasp abstract concepts and theories, and increase their understanding of the world and their community.
In Kuwait, many educational institutes offer vocational as well as other training programs apart from the normal credit programs. To cater to the educational needs of the working population, many colleges offer distance education. The degrees and certificates offered by these colleges and universities are very convenient for working people as well as students. Working people needs these degrees to update their knowledge and skill level which will come handy in their promotion and achieving growth as professionals. Students can also pursue their degree and work and earn at the same time. Also, since professionals do not have the time to attend classroom classes, distance education comes as a convenient alternative. They can learn at a time convenient to them and from the comfort of their homes.
