University Education


the training provided by universities in order to prepare people to work in various sectors of the economy or areas of culture. University graduates may find employment in research and design institutions, general-education schools, and secondary and higher specialized educational institutions. In the USSR, university education provides training primarily in the most important areas of the humanities and natural sciences.

The term “university education” also means the totality of general and specialized knowledge and skills that enable a university graduate to solve problems that he encounters in industry or to perform scientific research or pedagogical work within the area of specialized knowledge that he has acquired.
