skills you develop as you master the balance in your life will always remain and is a benefit to you, even after you graduate and are working full time. Friends - Throughout your education you’ll have many opportunities to make friends along the way. In your classes and lectures there will be ample chance to meet new people, and circumstances often force you to work in pairs or a group to get a task done. In addition, you’ll also spend a large amount of time with your classmates, so take the time to get to know them. It’s in school and college you form the friendships that last a lifetime, as you are brought together with people that have common interests and share fantastic experiences with. Throughout your education you are often forced to interact with people that you would not talk to in normal circumstances. Embrace it and learn the social skills you need to excel not just in the classroom, but in events, meetings and social gatherings as well. Building the “soft” people skills is a wonderful advantage of an education, and is reflected in the way you talk, make perceptions and interact with everyone that you meet. You’ll be much better off than your uneducated counterparts. Time Management - With many classes, deadlines, and often additional family or work responsibilities outside of your learning, there will be many demands on your time. As a result, most students turn into effective machines, as they churn out assignments and study for exams, while working part time or looking after their family. This pressure forces you to become a master of time management, which will carry over into all parts of your life.

TERTIARY EDUCATION Tertiary education , post-secondary education , or third level education is an optional final stage of formal learning that occurs after secondary education . Often delivered at universities , academies , colleges , seminaries , and institutes of technology , higher education is also available through certain college-level institutions, including vocational schools , trade schools, and other career colleges that award academic degree or professional certificates. Higher education serves many purposes, only some of which are emphasized in our culture. Because we as a society don’t acknowledge the full span of reasons for pursuing education after high school, some young people may think it’s not for them and, therefore, miss out on many of the potential benefits that such an educational experience provides. Below, we’ll look at some well-known and not-so-well-known purposes the various forms of higher education may serve – from vocational schools and certificate programs to Associate’s and Bachelor’s degree programs. It’s not just about learning; it’s about the opportunity for further personal development as well.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
