A Guide on how to Apply for Admission to Any University Abroad with the help of Capital College Consulting.
Does a college education still matter?
Because Steve Jobs, Mark Zuckerberg, and Bill Gates have founded their respective companies and blazed a path in the tech sector sans a college degree, many people are questioning the value of finishing school.
However, the general consensus among experts, including economic thought leaders, is that attending college and having a degree still does matter.
Quite simply, a college degree serves as a foundation for success later in life. A college education can provide a person invaluable training and skills that can be used to further one’s career. These skills include writing, research, and collaboration skills.
Furthermore, a college degree enables a person to become more competitive in the job market and gain access to more opportunities which would otherwise be unavailable to those who join the workforce immediately after graduating high school.
How your choice of school affects your career
Does your choice of college or university have an impact on your career? What do the experts say about finding the right college?
To some extent, your choice of which higher educational institution to go to does not matter. According to researchers from the San Diego State University, your choice will have an impact on which course you intend to take. For example, the researchers found that those who earned a business degree from the top colleges and universities earned more than their peers from other schools. The choice of which school to go to did not have much of an impact for those who earned engineering and science degrees.
Also, if you get into a selective college, you will become more likely to earn a higher degree after college and gain access to an extensive network of companies and individuals that would otherwise be unavailable if you study in a less selective educational institution.
Where the best colleges and universities are
For years, American and British schools have dominated the Academic Ranking of World Universities conducted by Shanghai Ranking Consultancy. In this annual ranking of educational academic institutions, 18 American and British schools are in the list of top 20 schools.
The schools are ranked using different factors including quality of education and faculty, research output, and per capita performance.
Now, if you are a student from Kenya (or from another country outside of America or UK) who wishes to get into any of the leading American or British educational institutions, you will face a host of challenges.
These challenges include expenses, writing essays, scholarship applications, and preparations for entrance exams.
