FAQ

What do you call the time after high school diploma?

The period after the high school diploma is often referred to as the transition period or interim period. During this phase, many young people decide whether to take up study, start an apprenticeship, complete a voluntary social year or choose another form of further education or orientation. It is a time of transition in which many important decisions have to be made for the future. Sometimes this time is also referred to as a "gap year", especially when students take time out to travel, get involved or pursue personal interests before committing to a specific apprenticeship or study.

What shouldn't you study?

It is difficult to make a blanket statement about what not to study, as this depends heavily on individual interests, abilities and career goals. What may not be suitable for one person could be the perfect choice for another. However, there are some considerations that should be taken into account when choosing a course:

Disinterest: It is advisable to choose a field of study that interests and motivates you personally. Don't study something just because it is expected by others or because it supposedly offers good job prospects if it doesn't really interest you.

Poor career prospects: Some degree programs may have limited job prospects or are highly dependent on current market demand. It is important to thoroughly research the career prospects and development opportunities offered by your chosen subject before enrolling.

Lack of personal skills or aptitude: If you don't have the required skills or aptitude for a particular subject, studying can become very tedious and lead to frustration. It is important to realistically assess whether you are suited to your chosen subject.

Overcrowded degree courses: Some degree courses are very overcrowded, which can lead to strong competitive pressure. If you choose such a course, you should be aware that it can be more difficult to achieve good grades or find a place.

Ultimately, choosing a degree course is a very personal decision that should be well thought through. It is advisable to inform yourself thoroughly, consider different options and, if necessary, seek advice from teachers, student advisors or other professionals.

What should I study?

The question of what you should study depends on several factors, including your personal interests, strengths, values and career goals. Take time to explore your passions and talents, research different fields of study, talk to guidance counselors, teachers or people in professions that interest you, and consider how your chosen field of study fits with your long-term goals. It can also be helpful to complete internships or attend events to gain more insight. Ultimately, it's important to study something that inspires and motivates you.
