IELTS Writing Task 2 Sample 03 - People Attend Colleges and Universities for Different Reasons

 

 

 

People attend colleges or universities for many different reasons (for example: new experiences, career preparation, increased knowledge etc.). Why do you think people attend colleges or universities?

Model Answer 1:
People mainly get enrolled in a college or university to achieve the necessary education and degree they require to get a job or to build a career. Having a good career is one of the main reasons people spending their time in colleges or universities but there are other reasons as well. The current society and educational structure is far different than it had been a century back when a self-educated person could gain a good career and parents could arrange private tutors to ensure their children’s education. But in today’s world colleges and universities are the authority to declare a person to have necessary education to be ready for the job sector and without the certification from colleges and universities it is almost impossible for someone to claim a good job.

People are going to colleges and universities because this is the most common way of getting education and they have no alternatives like the people of past century had. Most people are learning in colleges and universities and getting themselves ready for the future. The sole purpose of a college or university is to ensure the proper theoretical and moral education to build the ideal citizens the country needs and this is system which is unquestionably accepted by the society and people. People who do not have plan to use their certificate to get a job either because they have other career plans or may be blessed with inherited fortune. They go to these educational institutes to learn the values, ideas, knowledge and education they require to be good human. In fact education is a border line between a savage and a good man and this is another reason the society has adopted the idea of education for all and the colleges and universities are the places to get this education in the current age.

Some people go to universities to get further education to enhance their horizon or to improve their job position & salary. Others go to the colleges and universities to let the world know that they are education. Funny this may seems, but many people simply consider the higher education as the status they require to get higher in the society. Colleges and Universities nowadays offer specialized courses like technical courses or creative courses and  many people attend those courses simply because of their pure interests on these subjects or to gain the knowledge they need.

In my opinion, getting education, learning new things, experiencing diverse cultures and customs, getting prepared for the future career, improving job position, subject matter interests and social status are the main reasons for people to attend colleges and universities.

Sample Answer 2:
The university is a citadel of learning. It is a place where people of diverse culture, ethnicity, background and religion come together with the major purpose of knowledge acquisition. However, it is not out of place to suggest that some people come to school in other to gain information that will better equip them for their future ambition, while others still attend higher education in other to have the feeling of the tertiary education. But no matter what the reasons might be, I strongly believe that the main reason why people attend colleges and universities is to increase their knowledge.

 

Let consider one who comes to school for the just experience.  I believe his or her intention is not just to meet new friends because this can be done anywhere else. He or she wants to understand different behaviours and interact with persons from different areas, and various levels of intelligence. By so doing, he or she gradually imbibes knowledge at different levels and at different points. Take for instance, I know of a very good friend who always wanted to attend higher institution. When I enquired as to the particular school he wanted, her reply was simple; “ I do not have any school in mind, all I want is to go get new experience and change my environment”. However, after four years in the university, I observed that her attitude, intelligence, abilities and sagacity has increased greatly. This shows me that the ultimate end of going to the university is to acquire knowledge.

Also, for those who think that their reason for going to school is for career preparation. Statistics suggests that over 70% of the persons who studied a particular course or discipline in Nigeria, do not end up practicing the same course, and are never found along the career line throughout their lifetime. Evidences abound of various micro biologists who are chief editors in news paper agencies across the nation. My best Ifeanyi, he studied petroleum engineering but he is currently working with First Bank Nigeria.

In conclusion, a university for me is like a crucible, a furnace where minds are molded with the fire of knowledge in other to adapt to the outside world. We may have different reasons why we enter the colleges and universities, but one thing and only but one thing is for sure, the core reason why people attend the university and college is to increase knowledge.

Alternative Answer 3:
A University offers highest level of education as well as valuable degree required for the students to build their careers. University degrees are essential for the job market, to be versed in a specialized field or to be prepared for the further educations. People attend colleges or universities for lots of different reasons.  In my opinion three most common reasons for people to join a college or a university are to prepare for a prospective career, to have new experiences, and to increase their knowledge. But there are some other reasons like improving the current job position, to be specialized in a specific subject, to earn a degree to join a job or run a business etc.

Career preparation is probably the primary and most important reason for people to attend colleges and universities. A college or university degree gives more opportunity to have a full-time and stable job. In comparison a university degree holder is offered a better job that pays better than others. The job market is very competitive now a day compared to any other time in past. Careers such as telecommunication, information technologies etc. need many new employees. At colleges and universities, students can learn new skills for these careers and increase their opportunities for the future. In the whole academic years, the students learn not only the theory but also practical aspects for their future job needs. The universities prepare a structured and coherent syllabus for the students and without these experience and knowledge it is almost impossible for anyone to make himself prepared for the job and the knowledge he/she required for the specified job position.
    
Students also go to colleges or universities to have new experiences. For many, it is their first time away from home and they have to live among strangers. At colleges, they meet new people from many different places, races and cultures. They can see what life is from a different perspective. They can learn to live on their own and take care of them without having their family always nearby. The students have lots of opportunities to face the real-life situations while staying at a college or university. They learn to face the harsh situation, learn to treat the superiors, learn how to work to gain a desired aspiration, learn to work as a team member and many more. In short, colleges and universities offers so many different experiences that a student cannot get from anywhere else.
 
At colleges and universities, students have the opportunity to increase their knowledge about technology, art, history, about themselves and outer world which are impossible to achieve staying outside the campus. As they decide what they want to study, pursue their studies, and interact with their classmates, they learn a lot about themselves. They also, of course, have the opportunity to learn about many subjects in their classes. In addition to the skills and knowledge related to their career, college students also have the chance to take classes in other areas. For many, this will be their last chance to study different subjects. Colleges offer much more than career preparation. They offer the opportunity to have new experiences and to learn many kinds of things.
 
Many job holders, housewives even businessmen get themselves admitted into universities or colleges for a diploma courses. These courses are essential in many different perspectives, like: to learn a new technology (for example: Computer related diplomas), to train up for a new career (for example: photography courses), or to make them ready for more challenging jobs (for example: MBA in Agriculture). I think all these are major reasons why people attend colleges and universities.
