What is the difference between generalist and specialized universities? learn more
Generalist universities offer a broad range of subjects and courses that allow students to explore different fields of study, or 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 usually offer a wider selection of undergraduate and postgraduate degree types and levels.
