Higher Education

Higher education, also known as tertiary education, refers to all post-secondary education, including both public and private universities, colleges, technical training institutes, and vocational schools. This level benefits not just one person, but the entire educational system, as it produces individuals that are more environmentally conscious, have healthier habits, and have a higher level of civic participation. It prepares individuals not only by providing them with adequate and relevant job skills, but also by guiding them to be active members of their communities and societies. Higher education promotes fostering growth, reducing poverty, and boosting prosperity.
