Some people think that all university students should study whatever they like. Others believe that they should only be allowed to study subjects that will be useful in the future, such as those related to science and technology. Discuss both these views and give your own opinion.

Some would argue that all
college
students can choose their subjects to study, while other people think that students should only be permitted to take subjects that are important in the future,
such
as
science
and
technology
. While
science
and
technology
are essential subjects, I believe other
college
subjects
such
as humanities and arts are necessary because they are part of
college
study. On the one hand, some people think that students should only be allowed to learn useful subjects in the future,
such
as
science
and
technology
. By taking up those subjects, students will learn in the major field of education,
such
as engineering and allied medical sciences. And later in life, they will become engineers and nurses.
For example
, the Ministry of Education in the Philippines reported, 80% of 2019
college
graduates are courses in engineering and nursing.
However
, I believe, that other
college
studies
such
as the humanities and arts are
such
important as
science
and
technology
.
On the other hand
, other people think that students should be allowed to select subjects of what they want. By taking up the subjects of their choice,
such
as arts and humanities, will motivate them to focus on their studies because they are compassionate about what they are learning. It will lead them to be successful students in the field of education they are studying.
For instance
, students who are passionate about studying singing and dancing will be a successful singer or an excellent dance performer later in life.
Therefore
, I believe that other university subjects should have the same level of importance in
college
education. In conclusion,
although
,
science
and
technology
are key subjects to achieve a successful career,
however
arts and humanities are essential components in studies to be a better singer or a dancer.

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
