University or college? What's the difference?

Dear graduates, within two months you should be clear in the completed application forms. In search of suitable subjects you may have started to waver between the high (university) and higher professional school (college). We will review the advantages and disadvantages of studies on these two institutions.

** Mode ** ** ** Universities are largely more liberal regime. At many universities the student may choose the schedule itself and distribute it as just a few days a week. This allows parallel study with work or select multiple fields at once. Attendance at lectures is not always required in addition. Courses are rated credits and the overall study is completed graduation. ** College ** mode is more similar to secondary schools. At most hours, is compulsory and the daily lessons from Monday to Friday. Schedule is fixed. Great emphasis is generally placed on the practice. Courses are usually graded credits, and the study is completed by the graduation.

** Fees and length of study ** Students of state universities ** ** do not pay any tuition fees. In private, however, the amount can go up to thousands of dollars per semester. The classic period of study at university three years of Bachelor's and Master's degree two years, which can establish doctoral studies (2–3 years). Other disciplines (eg medical) are studied for six years. ** ** All college are burdened with a fee. The public schools are moving in the hundreds of thousands a year (2000 – 6000 CZK), then in private in the tens of thousands of crowns (10 000 – 40 000 CZK). The study usually takes two to three and a half years.

** Prestige ** ** ** Universities are generally more accepted in comparison to college can be interpreted as a higher education. Graduates have a greater opportunity to find employment abroad. ** College **, as has been said, give more practice space, so more can be asked for job seekers requiring practical skills. There are, however, recognized abroad too.

** ** Difficulty Generally, it is argued that the study of the university ** ** is demanding. But there are exceptions, of course, and due to the different approach of both institutions is difficult to compare performance. ** College ** have a similar regime, although high school each year (summer and winter) but finished with exams as well as at universities and at the end of the study also advocates a final thesis. Large amount of practice time can also be challenging. As the university is required to adopt the proper pass entrance exams, but they tend to be easier than at universities and candidates have more success (sometimes up to one hundred percent).

** Title ** ** ** Most universities guarantee after three years of successful studio acquisition generally recognized Bachelor (BA), which can be after two more years to expand (eg, Ing. Mgr.). Higher degree graduates will automatically be assigned to a higher grade. Study ** ** is not completed college gain the same title as a university, but the graduate becomes a „graduate specialist“ (DiS). This title but does not warrant such a salary, which has secured an undergraduate, and still has low social prestige.

** Application ** ** ** University graduates, as has been mentioned in some previous articles, are usually quite a choice, and employers prefer them (even if they have a Bachelor degree). On the other hand, the practical side of learning is not put such emphasis. Generally, college ** ** more focused on practice. During that students have the opportunity to gain valuable contacts with potential employers. Therefore, it is preferable to college for those who already are clear what they wanted to do and need to practice mainly in the field.

** ** View of the Future It is assumed that the study will be ** ** university in future years considered prestigious. Support for university students and their state will probably remain a big advantage. As for college ** **, there is the concept of the Czech education system called „involution program“ that would be expected within ten years, the complete abolition of these institutions. Some colleges have even disappeared, while in the Czech Republic there are only ten years old. More so-called White Paper on Tertiary Education.

** Some other questions: **

** It is possible the transition from college to university? ** Yes, but only some universities (eg MU) included results from the college. The opposite procedure is not possible. ** Can I have college as a „rescue“? ** Yes, basically it is a fairly common practice. College of the count and writes the second and third round of entrance exams in mid-August. The first deadline for entrance exams at the end of April, exams are in June. ** It is possible to study remotely college? ** Yes, but the study can stretch for three to four streams. ** What are the options in the CR? ** The Czech Republic is close to 200 colleges, public, private and church schools. The focus is different from the economic, journalistic, technical, through educational and theological, to health, arts, humanities and law. More universities and colleges catalog on this site. ** How do high-quality school? ** One of the hallmarks of quality college is to grant the certificate EVOS and cooperation with foreign institutions.
