Every year, tens of thousands of students are expelled from universities, and several thousand leave educational institutions on a voluntary basis. Voluntarily means that the student consciously approached the issue of picking up documents and leaving. For many (especially the adult generation), this causes misunderstanding. Let's analyze the reasons why young people suddenly come up with the idea of quitting school.
A huge part of those entering universities have not decided what they want to become "when they grow up", and are guided by the following stereotypes:
- everybody does, and I do
- where the use points are enough, there I will go
- I act so that my mother does not upset
- I'll do it, and then I'll think about it.
- don't go to the army!
A modern schoolchild does not have time to reflect on the future profession, he is busy preparing for the exam. And in my head there is an unbreakable attitude: school – institute – work. Not fulfilled is a bad member of society.
Hard to learn
Schoolchildren are not prepared for the idea that they go to the institute to gain knowledge. Driven during the period of study at school, children get used to the fact that to study = to pass tests, from the list of options to choose the right one. Writing and listening to lectures, delving into the topic, studying the material, preparing for the lesson, thinking critically and discussing – yesterday's schoolchildren do not know how and do not want to learn. "It's too complicated," they think and decide not to bother.
Even if a student studies at a free department, student life implies independence and life separately from the family. Many are helped by their parents – they provide money for housing, clothes and food. Those whom the family is not able to help, are left alone with material problems and go to work. Only a few manage to combine two cases.
If a student studies on a paid basis and a year of study on average costs 200 thousand rubles, then the risk of quitting halfway increases. Today, parents are ready to pay, and tomorrow, due to difficulties in the family, the opportunity to pay for the diploma of the future specialist has disappeared.
Disappointment in the chosen specialty
At first, yesterday's schoolboy's eyes burned, he dreamed of becoming a prose writer, studied philology or journalism. After the first year of study, an understanding suddenly came: "not mine." A student of the Faculty of Biology, having studied until the 3rd year, decides that it is boring and there is no point in continuing. A girl law student takes the documents to become an actress and try to enter the theater.
Not always health problems lead to expulsion of their own free will, often students are given an academic. Rentals. In difficult situations, the student takes the documents and postpones the training until better times. Health problems often relate to mental health: stress, lack of sleep, chronic fatigue, malnutrition cause a nervous breakdown, and even depression. There is no question of continuing studies, health care comes to the fore.
Interestingly, according to statistics, students of the philological and physical-technical faculties are most susceptible to mental illness, and the least susceptible to bio- and geofaculty.
