University: Top 10 reasons to choose College
You’re considering going to college. Here are ten good reasons that will make you definitely want to join the schools of these establishments.
To find your way gradually
Getting into College is an opportunity to take the time to mature your career project, and therefore make a mistake, and start over. This is the whole point of reorientations between disciplines.
If universities themselves decide on these bridges, it is often the proximity between disciplines that will play a role in the process of equivalence and validation of prior learning. For example, changing from Applied Foreign Language to a Foreign and Regional Languages Literature and Civilizations would be possible, whereas if you want to change your field radically, you will probably have to start again in the first year of your studies.
On the other hand, if the gateway is not possible within the University, other solutions exist. Restart, Fast track, in recent years, the staggered revenues, in the course of courses in January, February,
To gain autonomy
Less teaching hours than in high school, more flexible schedules, no attendance check except for the TD (directed work) and TP (practical work), the University is the place where the learning of autonomy takes place.
More or less difficult to negotiate according to the students, this turn, is not necessarily negative. It also rhymes with the discovery of a new discipline, a new methodology in work, which can be very rewarding for the student.
You can also start a sports activity at a lower cost, find a student job in your faculty, and join a Student association. For those who manage to find the right rhythm, University is then synonymous with emancipation.
For the disciplines you learn in college
For some disciplines, the faculty is the compulsory passage. Whether in law, a subject that is not taught in high school, or in medicine with the PACES (first year common to health studies) for students who are destined to one of the four medical streams (dentistry, medicine, pharmacy or maieutic).
The University is also the place to study the Humanities (especially the Humanities and some social sciences) : 60% of students enrolled in 2016 were in a SHS (Humanities and Social sciences) stream.
For local studies
When you’re 18, you can dream of leaving the family cocoon… or not. Community College can then be a good card to play.
With some 80 institutions scattered throughout the country, the University is accessible wherever one lives. Moreover, in the 2017 list of cities where it’s good to study a student, we find middle-class cities popular by students themselves such as Chambéry, La Rochelle, Limoges, Pau, and Troyes. Closer University facilities, a pleasant living environment in human-sized cities, lower costs, less installation stress, that’s the advantage of proximity.
To make the research
Teachers are also researchers, students sometimes find out when they go to University! Their mission is twofold: Professor, he teaches a discipline to students and he also works on a research topic, gives lectures, writes articles. He
The affiliation of teaching to research can give rise to genuine vocations and desires of thesis subjects among students. While the number of Ph.D. students has been declining over the past decade [figures from the Ministry of Higher Education, Research and Innovation, 2016], Master’s students in research are the most likely to register for a Ph.D. degree they accounted for 12% in 2014-2015. However, doctoral studies vary by discipline: 13% in science, 12% in health, followed by law, 6%, and Humanities, 4%.
For less expensive studies
University tuition fees remain relatively stable year after year. At the beginning of the 2017 school year, they were respectively 184 € in bachelor’s degree, 256 € in master’s degree and 391 € in doctorate. Please note, however, that students registering for a double degree will have to pay these fees twice : once at a full rate and a second time at a reduced rate (€122 for a second degree, for example).
As for health insurance contributions, the next school year will be the occasion for a major change : students will join the general social security scheme and will no longer contribute to student mutual societies, for which they paid € 217 in 2017. It will be replaced by an annual contribution of €90.
For excellence training
For students who hesitate with the preparatory classes, the choice of a selective course at the University can be a good solution. There are approximately 120 dual
Languages and Economics, history and Political Science, science and Social sciences, these very busy courses – at least 30 hours a week-enable the two degrees to be obtained at the end of the three years.

To enter the
If the failure rate in the first year of a bachelor’s degree is known, the University inserts well its holders of a bac+5. Thirty months after entering the workforce, 90% of 2013 graduates had found a job, an increase over the previous promotion, according to the department’s 2016 data. Jobs stable at 73% and with a median salary of € 1,900 net per month. These figures should not, however, hide the fact that there are significant differences between disciplinary fields, as the hard science degrees are better integrated into the
