Sociologists: for students of Western Ukraine, it is important calling, East employment opportunities

53% of Ukrainian students choose a College, considering the possibility of further employment. Another 42% consider their interest in the profession, but 25% is hoping for connection and financial ability of their parents. Are the survey results on its official website the company Research & Branding Group.

In may 2016, respondents were asked why they chose their school.

«It is worth noting that compared to a similar survey conducted in March 2010, the hierarchy of important factors when choosing a school practically has not changed. The most significant is a decline of 7% expectations on the ability of parents and 5% — the possibility of further employment,» — said in the conclusion of sociologists.

Among these factors are regional differences. So, a job opportunity was more important for students of Eastern Ukraine (65%) and least important to residents of the southern and Western regions (45-46%).

In Western Ukraine more than in other regions, respondents cited the defining factor of purpose or vocation (35%), whereas in the East and South is only 7-10%.

When the school is already selected, upon receipt of one of the students tend to rely solely on themselves: their knowledge (46%) or at least on the medal (3%).

Another part is vested in the money (38%) or good (23%).

Some more time as hoped on their knowledge and on a more pragmatic basis (31%). «In other words, it would be better to err,» the sociologists comment.

Sociologists also asked the students when, in their opinion, should complete the training.
