Experience over Education

Not Useful?

Not Useful?

The last four years have brought a significant decrease in the number of university students in Poland. Apparently, young Poles prefer to start their professional career earlier instead of obtaining a diploma. Statistics show that during the last two years the number of students applying to Polish universities has decreased by 15.6%. In fact, this number is declining faster than expected and forecasts show that this phenomenon will continue. The most likely reason is the popular claim that higher education in Poland is useless. Indeed, young Poles who have already graduated have problems finding jobs. University graduates in Poland face unemployment, often caused by a lack of experience. This explains why others prefer to enter the labour market as soon as they gain some work experience which seems to them more valuable than a diploma. On the other hand, that is good news for those willing to study. As a result, fewer university candidates mean easier entry requirements.
