University programs in the future

Which course to choose and on what basis? That question appears in everyone’s head before the matura exams. Future students take under consideration things like interest in the certain field, salary, market demand or lack of automatization risk. When choosing studies you should ask yourself these questions:

What interests you? - it’s an important question, because you have to remember that after gaining the degree you will spend about 40 years in the certain profession. If you choose studies that aren’t even interesting for you there’s a high risk that you will soon feel burned out or that you won’t be successful in your work.

What makes you better than others? - think about your strong qualities that you can use in your further development. If for example you’re very good at learning new languages and you like doing it, maybe it’s worth attending philology or international studies.

You prefer humanistic subjects or science? - it’s an important question, if for example you feel great in humanistic subjects, you have good grades in polish, history or civics, but you’re doing worse at math or physics, there’s a high probability that economics or finance and accounting won’t be satisfactory for you.

It’s hard to write about future-oriented fields of study, because trends on the market constantly change and it’s hard to foresee which professions will be on top in 5, 10 or 15 years. But before choosing the right studies it’s worth getting familiar with current trends on the job market, as well as forecasts of future trends. Rankings of best universities can also be helpful, e.g. Perspective Ranking.

No matter which course you choose It’s important that it complies with your interests and gives you satisfaction. If you do what you like it’s most likely that you will do your future job well and studies will be a pleasure for you.
