Learn University Rankings

Have you seen the world university rankings?

Here in Korea, there is great interest in university rankings.

Going to a top ranked university in Korea means a lot. The best schools provide the best job opportunities, pay and promotions. The difference between a top school and an average or low level university – in terms of future income – is big.

So, I was interested in a new report. It ranks world universities. The rankings are supposed to be based on a lot of factors. The report is supposed to be one of the best ever made.

Learn English Writing and Attend the Best Universities

Many ESL students have a dream. They want to go to a Western school. Maybe Harvard or Oxford? It’s possible if you study well. You also have to learn how to write an English essay and get a good TOEFL or IELTS score. Without good research and writing skills, going to your dream school will be difficult.

It does not matter if you are super smart. If you can’t write sentences and paragraphs properly, the dream may be dead.

So what’s the lesson? Learn how to write awesome essays and perhaps you can attend a top university.
