In today's world, the value of the second higher education, of course, increased in comparison with earlier times. More and more people think about how to get another profession. As of this spodvigaet?

As demonstrated by a study conducted some time ago, the HSE, in almost all of the federal districts of the country observed increase in the number of students who wish to obtain a second higher education.

According to the data, the vast majority of students (66.5% of men and 70% women), the second to enter higher education before the age of 30 years, about 20% of people - from 31 to 40 years old and about 6% - over 40 years.

At the same time 23% believe that it should be done every year, every three years - 26% every 5 years - 17%.

And the large number of people who are confident in the need to constantly improve their qualifications, among people with higher education - 86%. What results have already experienced once again in the student's desk?

GOALS: What is the main purpose of the project? What are its most important activities/achievements? Who are the expected beneficiaries, both direct and indirect? Edit

1. The labor market demand for specialists of universal

Increasingly, employers in the job, among other demands present there are two higher educations. Some employers clearly imagine why they need a specialist, but after the spirit of the times looking for those that gives rise to jokes about the cleaner-economist-Toastmasters-divers analytics. Another really need an expert who is knowledgeable not only in economy, but also in law or marketer with knowledge of psychology.

Ivan, 27: "At work, where there was no architect, realized that without the programmer the ability to design the architecture of the weak and dependent. I decided to remedy this deficiency. To some extent it succeeded. Unfortunately, in addition to general aspects there are still a great many small areas. no one to learn everything. Perhaps learn programming can be infinite. "

2. The desire for career growth

Sometimes a higher position requires new knowledge and skills, it becomes an incentive to get another degree. But if the second education is contrary to the candidate by a professional, it can even become a disadvantage.

Olesya, 37: "She worked long enough in the specialty, but at one point decided to change his profession to a more" feminine "because of dissatisfaction with career went from manufacturing in lawyers."

3. The desire to change profession

About 40% of the students again come to the university with the aim to change the qualifications. Often this is due to the disappointment in the first received specialty. After 17-18 years, the majority of students is difficult to choose a profession for life, and the parents, guided by ideas about how to better make their children do on the "prestigious" faculties. In addition, the resulting specialization may lose its relevance and attractiveness and to encourage a person to acquire new knowledge.

Alla, 42: "The work on specialty at the new place of residence was not found. interesting vacancy has been proposed, but in a completely different field. With the interest to learn again. "

4. Expectations for higher wages

Many students have high expectations for the second degree, since, in their opinion, he is the guarantor of a solid reward for their labor. If you really got the necessary knowledge and are willing to take on more responsibility at work, then this is your option. Otherwise, go to the crust of the second stack of other documents.

Egor, 31: "He worked for six years as a design engineer at a large enterprise, but at some point I realized that my salary is available not satisfied and want to exercise their communication skills. He moved to the sales department at a much higher salary, but with the condition that I would get a second degree at the Faculty of Economics. "

5. The pursuit of knowledge

Knowledge can become outdated and lose relevance, as some experts would like to understand the related issues. Sometimes the person has a hobby that became his life's work, and he goes back to study to acquire the necessary knowledge. And in the end, there are people who want to continually improve themselves. And for them it does not matter - they will be able to put into practice the knowledge gained or not, the main thing - to broaden their horizons.

Julia, 46: "Since I can remember, to learn something, see or learn something new always beckoned. Work on yourself and satisfaction with the results of this work ... It's like a love of travel. "

6. Prestige in society

Some people go for a second higher or doctoral defense, because it is fashionable says EssayBison. They think that the presence of many jewels in the business card will automatically raise their credibility and make others listen to them. A classmate of mine protection and even worked for a while in low-paid, but the hands-free position at the university solely in order to have the full right to leave a business card all their regalia. Indeed, some people acts as an impressive list of professional merit.

7. The desire to earn praise

If your child is constantly talked about in the family that love must be earned, especially success in school, at school he will learn from one of "five", not a little worry about the smallest of the "quartet", then go to a good university, in the end will receive a red diploma. But this is not enough. The need to prove the family, relatives and friends of their necessity, importance and the desire to earn the praise motivates a man to get the second, third degree, going to all sorts of courses.

8. Infantilism

Be a perpetual student, of course, pleased. In this case, the thirst for knowledge is replaced with the desire to be in this special atmosphere, and the study is perceived as a get-together or a chat with the same interests. This student learns without effort and quite pleased with the "troika". It would be desirable as far as possible to push back the time of return to work and in response to valid claims to say that he's learning! It is a kind of attempt to escape from the responsibility, when you have to make their own decisions.

9. The desire to arrange a personal life

Not such a common cause to obtain a second higher, but still has a place to be. Admission has one university or new courses is another way to get to know as Student Diversity implies communication and, moreover, can be better to look to you like a man. Often, such a path chosen by those who studied in the traditional "youth" or "maiden" departments, such as the aviation or pedagogical.
