Closer to the end of school, each graduate has to think about where to continue their studies. If we are talking about a university, then here it is necessary to decide which form of study to choose: full-time or part-time. Both forms are good in their own way, so before submitting documents to the university, you should carefully weigh the pros and cons.
Full-time education is the main type of education, it is preferred by most students. Classes are held during the day and take 5-6 hours. After the end of the class, extensive homework is done. Subjects are taught in blocks over a period of time. Knowledge is tested using a session that involves passing exams, writing term papers and diplomas. This form of training, thanks to the full immersion method, allows you to acquire quality knowledge and the necessary practical skills.
Advantages of full-time education:
- obtaining quality knowledge
- full student life
- availability of student benefits (for example, deferral from the army)
- communication with teachers
- the opportunity to conduct scientific activities.
- lack of time for a part-time job
- high cost of training
- the need to live in a hostel (for nonresident students).
Full-time education fosters discipline and makes you fit. It is full of interesting and vivid events, the memory of which remains for a lifetime: sports competitions, hiking trips, KVN and others.
The correspondence form is chosen for various reasons: lack of money for a point, the need to combine work with study, the inability to live for a long time in another city. The learning process is carried out in cycles. Educational materials are issued first. The student independently studies the necessary topics and takes exams twice a year to confirm the acquired knowledge.
Advantages of part-time education:
- the ability to combine studies with other activities
- keeping the usual schedule
- affordable cost.
- lack of benefits
- longer learning process
- low quality of education (not always, but often)
- the likelihood of difficulties in employment.
It is easier to enroll in the correspondence department, you can study and work at the same time. The student has to face great difficulties when questions arise, since the answers to them should be looked for on their own due to the physical inability of the teachers to consult everyone at once.
And what a sin to hide: part-time education among employers is valued less than full-time education.
