Rising university fees and scarce employment prospects for graduates have led some people to say that universities should not teach arts subjects, like philosphy and history, and only offer practical degree courses that maximize the chances of employment. To what extent do you agre or disagree?

Employability is the key factor that determines the growth of a nation. Due to the
increase
in university fees and the decrease in
employment
opportunities, people say that universities should offer professional degree courses which will grow the chances of
employment
rather than offering arts subjects like philosophy and history.
This
essay will argue that why I strongly disagree that the courses offered by the colleges will have nothing to do with the rate of
employment
and rising fees. The predominant factor in unemployment would be the quality of graduates that the universities produce. In spite of dropping out arts degrees, if the universities
increase
the standard of education provided reasonable to the fees paid, apparently the quality of the students will go high which will enable them to meet the higher levels set by the industry.
For example
, if a student doesn't meet the eligibility criteria provided by a company for an interview,
then
he won't even get a chance to showcase his talents.
Hence
the universities should higher the level of education provided by them, so that students can easily ace the job process to get employed. Another concern to the given statement is the opinion that universities should teach only practical degrees,
instead
of arts subjects, which could maximize the chances of
employment
. If those subjects are suspended,
then
the resource demand in the respective domains will eventually
increase
, which cannot help any way to tackle the
unemployability
crisis. A research says that the number of students who undergo non technical courses like history, philosophy, archaeology etc.., is very low when compared to the number of students who pursue technical studies.
Hence
this
will result in emerging a new problem rather than solving the existing one.
This
essay argued why not teaching arts subjects won't be an effective solution to
increase
the
employablity
rate. In my opinion, increasing the education standard rather than the fees can possibly hike the
employment
opportunities.

Include an introduction and conclusion

A conclusion is essential for IELTS writing task 2. It is more important than most people realise. You will be penalised for missing a conclusion in your IELTS essay.

The easiest paragraph to write in an essay is the conclusion paragraph. This is because the paragraph mostly contains information that has already been presented in the essay – it is just the repetition of some information written in the introduction paragraph and supporting paragraphs.

The conclusion paragraph only has 3 sentences:

  • Summary
  • Restatement of thesis
  • Prediction or recommendation

Example:

To summarize, a robotic teacher does not have the necessary disciple to properly give instructions to students and actually works to retard the ability of a student to comprehend new lessons. Therefore, it is clear that the idea of running a classroom completely by a machine cannot be supported. After thorough analysis on this subject, it is predicted that the adverse effects of the debate over technology-driven teaching will always be greater than the positive effects, and because of this, classroom teachers will never be substituted for technology.

Start your conclusion with a linking phrase. Here are some examples:

  • In conclusion
  • To conclude
  • To summarize
  • Finally
  • In a nutshell
  • In general
