Probably, choosing a programme would rank amongst my top three most important live decisions to make. Choosing the programme to do in my university days was no joke. I spent weeks doing research and asking around to make sure it was what I really want, whether it would help me achieve my dreams.
I asked myself a lot of questions, and in this article, I will share with you some of the factors I considered before choosing a programme to read in the university.
First and foremost, is that programme you want to do employable? Yes, we were all here when the finance minister of the country came out to dampen our spirits with his utterances that the Government payroll is full. Well I am not here to dispute that fact but what I want you to know is that there are some programmes when you study in the university, there are employees lining up to employ you. Is that programme you are considering to study one?
Does that programme your friends or family is saying peak your interest? In as much as we must pick good programmes to read in the university, I think it is most important that we choose programmes that peak our interest. Programmes that when taught send billions of electro sparks flying in your brain and have your pupils dilated out of sheer amazement and delight. In short, reading a good programme is good, but coming out with a good certificate is best.
Does that programme fall inline with your future dreams and aspirations. In this our part of the world, dreams are seldom born into reality, but it does not mean we should give up on them either. You are someone who fancies your self in white robe with a stethoscope hanging around your neck, well my friend, the programme to study in the University for you is medicine or something related to it considering you meet the requirements. So go for that programme and realize your dream.
Many people and the problems or challenges they face in life. These challenges could be a hindrance in reading a certain programme or not. All factors must be carefully assessed and considered before making that all important decision.
