University Eeny, meeny, miny, moe: what is the right higher education modality for you?
What did you want to be when you grew up? Probably some career options have crossed your mind, haven't they? Shoot the first stethoscope those who never imagined wearing a white coat, treating patients and telling them that everything will be all right?

Whatever your professional ambitions, know that there are countless alternatives that make it possible for you to achieve the long-awaited diploma. Below you can check some of them.
1) Higher Education Technology Programs
Don't despair, little apprentice: As you enter a Higher Education Technology Program, you don't have to develop highly complex and sophisticated items, such as the flying brooms that Harry Potter's gang uses to wander around. In this particular context, the word technology is related to the academic degree of technologist stamping the diploma of those who complete the program.
Candidates are eligible to enroll in the higher education technology when they have completed high school or equivalent training. This degree modality aims to enable specialists to attend specific fields of the labor market. Course lengths are on average three years, which can make a difference in the lives of those who count the hours, minutes and seconds to start building a successful career.
The curricula of higher education technology programs are full of hands-on activities, and as they do so, the students get their hands dirty and get the first impressions of the future career path that awaits them. Yeah, you might have realized that it's not just the students at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry who have fun while studying to earn their diplomas…;)
2) Undergraduate Courses: Bachelor Degrees
Offered by public and private universities, the Bachelor Degrees last between three and six years. Throughout the undergraduate program, students receive generalist training and solid preparation to start professional careers such as doctors, dentists, lawyers, journalists, architects… You probably must be wondering how to choose from so many options, right? Pocahontas, one of Disney's princesses, advises you to listen to what your heart says (and we really agree with her!).
Some higher education institutions offer bachelor degree programs in two modalities: face-to-face or distance learning (you can choose the one that best fits your lifestyle). People who complete this type of training receive a diploma that gives them a bachelor's degree in some area of knowledge.
3) Teacher training Programs
The undergraduate programs in the teacher training area are suitable for those who, after completing their degree, imagine themselves enjoying a professional career like that of Profesor Jirafales. You may already feel that your place in the world is within a classroom, questioning the causes, motives, reasons, and circumstances of learning.
These undergraduate programs follow the same logic as the bachelor's degree: they offer in-depth notions about specific branches of knowledge and have an average duration of between four to five years. The only difference is that under this type of undergraduate programs students receive training aimed at teaching, so that they can later teach to classes of kindergarten, elementary and high school students. Those who complete this training get a degree that gives them a diploma and a career that can make a difference in the lives of everyone who is transformed by education.
And in the not so distant future…
Sometimes thinking about the things the future holds for us seems difficult, right? Not even The Simpsons (who, by the way, are accustomed to making some bombshell predictions) can glimpse the world in ten or fifteen years without feeling butterflies in the stomach for uncertainty.
