University degrees may range from undergraduate degree, post graduate degree, doctoral degree and master’s degree. All these qualifications help one to take charge of their future by building confidence and skills thereby opening up new opportunities to the graduand at whichever step in life. University students are always offered trainings that are tailored to meet the expectations of the job markets. They are equipped with skills required to meet the challenging demands of the job market according to Fleming J and Owens (2010) and García (2010). They engage in specific skill acquisition in a field that they have special interests in. It is a common practice for one to engage more vigorously in a field he is most interested rather than a field one has got no interests in.
Going to a university exposes one to rich cultural and social diversity. Making friends from various regions and countries is something that is of paramount importance to the student. This makes the student ready for the international market. Attaining university education opens one to the international market and therefore one can work with international organizations like the World Food Programme, United Nations Organization and World Bank as noted by Enders and Fulton (2002). This advances his/her career further. Working in any of the international organizations will always result to increased earning potential, range of opportunities and a career that is rewarding. Graduates always tend to earn more than those who have only A level education (Direct.gov.uk, 2010).
