Selection of University Study Programs and its Implications in Academic Performance and the Labor Market - Nation-Level Study – funded by NASRI

In general, when the time comes for high school graduates to choose their study programs and university, they often find themselves in a dilemma regarding these decisions, especially when the options are so numerous and often driven by the market. Through a clear and scientifically based methodology, this study aimed to be a pioneer in the missing information regarding the selection process of a field of study by graduates, its implications on their academic performance, the gender gap in the selected study programs, and the potential to be competitive in the labor market.

The study came to the conclusion that choosing a study program is an extremely serious process that determines the development of an individual’s path in regard to their career, work, and professionalization. In this study, the fact became clear that most of the interviewees take into consideration the opinions of family and friends and fewer listen to themselves and their intuition rather than external factors.
