College choice factor-A college is an educational institution which rewards a degree to a student. It is a place of social and personal development apart from the intellectual development. Basically it is a ticket to an adventure beyond the parameters of what one has experienced throughout their school life.
But the major question arises when one has to select a college to pursue higher studies. There are a number of factors that a student considers while he or she is concerned about his or her future regarding selecting a college. Some of them are listed below:
- Aim of the candidate: A student should first be very clear about their aim and then choose their dream college amongst the best colleges for that major.
- Affordable: One should seek diversity not just in terms of nationality but also in terms of financial background. The fees of a college is a major point for a college selection basically it becomes an important point for the parents and I guess the students should also take this under consideration and there are many colleges with less cost but with adequate resources.
- Location of a college: Parents are more concerned about the location of any college and also the campus housing facility offered. The location of any college from the student’s home can also act as a deciding factor. This point may be ignored for the male candidate but for girls this becomes the most effective factor.
- Admission criteria: If a student is well determined about the above three points then they should look for the colleges with a proper admission procedure as there are some colleges that attract students on the basis of their resources but at the time of admission the real scenario is depicted and one has been left with no choice other than being dependent only on that college.
- Opportunities: If one’s interest and circumstances don’t demand an immediate concentration on only one field of study then they should opt for a place that’ll force to stretch in multiple directions which will also help in enhancement of one’s knowledge. Generally a student perpetuates with what they’re familiar with, descending to the same college that their friends are or duplicating their parental paths. But if you want a secured future try to be jack of all trades. So consider this point while choosing a college.
- Environment: An average student can also perform well if he gets the proper environment of study while a brilliant student can deteriorate his performance if subjected to an environment that is not so influenced by studies. So environment of a college should be also considered.
- Placement: Almost every student before entering any educational institution dreams of being placed in a well reputed organisation after their graduation. Placement is one of the eminent criteria to categorise a college or a university as good. Try to browse all information regarding the placement status of the last batch of the college and then you may be able to get the appropriate information regarding the status of the college.
