Study Areas / Degree Levels


What is the difference between generalist and specialized, small and large universities in terms of the range of study areas they offer and degree levels available?

Generalist, or multidisciplinary, universities offer a broad range of subjects and courses that allow students to explore different study areas before choosing a major. They also provide students with a well-rounded education that can be applied to many different careers. On the other hand, specialized universities focus on a specific field of study and offer more in-depth courses and training in that field. This can be beneficial for students who know exactly what they want to do and want to gain specialized knowledge and skills in their chosen field.
Most higher education institutions offer a range of degree levels, from undergraduate to postgraduate degrees. However, some universities may offer more degree levels than others. In particular, larger-sized universities, which are in most cases generalist universities, usually offer a wider selection of undergraduate and postgraduate degree types and levels.

Size and Profile


University size and profile can be important factors to consider when choosing a university or assessing its value. Here are some potential reasons why...

  • Cost: private for-profit universities generally have higher tuition fees than public or not-for-profit universities
  • Resources: a larger university may have more resources available to its students, including research facilities, libraries, and extracurricular activities. However, a smaller university may offer a more personalized experience and smaller class sizes.
  • Networking: a larger university may offer more opportunities for networking and building connections with other students and professionals in your field, but smaller universities may offer a tighter-knit community and more personalized networking opportunities.
  • Quality of Education: a university with a lower student-staff ratio, for example, typically means that students will receive more personalized attention from their lecturers. This can lead to more individualized instruction, more opportunities for feedback and guidance and a better learning experience overall.
  • Location: campus setting can have an impact on students' access to resources, cost of living, transportation, social life and safety.
  • Diversity: the size and profile of a university can impact the diversity of its student body, faculty and curriculum. Larger universities may attract more international students and offer a wider range of academic programs, while smaller universities may have a more homogenous population.
  • Religious affiliation: while it may not be the most important factor for everyone, understanding the religious affiliation of a university can help students determine if it aligns with their personal beliefs and provide a unique academic and spiritual experience.

The importance of the size and type of University can vary depending on the student's individual goals, beliefs and priorities. When choosing a University it is important to consider these factors along with other criteria, such as academic programs, location, cost and university culture.
