Universities universities in developing provinces of Turkey. This is a response to pressure coming from local MPs who in turn voice the demands of their constituencies. However, while the already existing 85 universities are wrestling with financial and academic difficulties, it does not seem to be a good idea to add new universities to the system of higher education. First of all, the new universities will experience staffing problems. That is, they will have difficulty finding faculty that is qualified to teach in these budding universities. In our country the number of academicians who meet the academic requirements is limited. New universities will have two choices: either to draw from the existing pool or to employ under qualified people. To attract those instructors from other universities they will have to offer attractive incentives . However, since these will be state universities they will not have the necessary funds and most academics will be unwilling to go to small town universities where academic and life standards are below par. The only venue open to these universities will be to employ local professionals or under qualified instructors. The inevitable result will follow: a drop in the quality of education. In addition to recruitment problems, small town universities will have financial difficulties. The funds allocated to them by the state will not be enough to build from scratch all the facilities that make a university a "real university". A university is......

...student they are not at all, after speaking to my peers who are also college students 20 out of the 30 I asked all said they “procrastinate when it comes to academic school work”. Academic procrastination is a reflection of daily postponement to school life is defined as to delay duties and responsibilities related to school, or to save them to the last minute (Denziz, Tras, & Ayodgan, 2009).

..."I am a student at the University of Kansas studying English and American Studies, and this may be a bit unorthodox, but I wanted to say that your book Writing Essays About Literature was one of the best books I have ever read in the world of academia! I am taking a Critical Theory class, and we were assigned only the first 55 pages, but I really could not put the book down. Your writing is magnificent, and I am constantly referring to the book when writing papers. You have done a brilliant job making essay-writing easy, structured, and actually enjoyable!" - Lauren Gaylor, University of Kansas "Katherine O. Acheson's Writing Essays About Literature is a concise, fully portable and very well-priced guide that gets it right. Acheson's emphasis on inductive reasoning is wonderfully refreshing. It really helps English professors persuade their students to argue from the specific to the general, to found their arguments on the details of evidence and on the careful—and affectively sensitive—analysis of that evidence. And the very best thing about this book is that Acheson's casual and unassuming prose style makes students want to read it. And they do. And then they bring it to class!" - Glenn Clark, University of Manitoba "For those of us interested in teaching writing through literature, Katherine O. Acheson's guide is an indispensable companion, teaching students that writing is more about process and less about imagined giftedness. The book begins by teaching students how...

...we have the ability to effectively make decisions based upon truths and verified information rather than unknowns. When the unknowns are eliminated it brings you the plain truths which exist and make a decision based on that. Ethics plays a large part in my critical thinking from last week. My decision to quit smoking is not only based on facts but as well as having ethical points that were addressed. In a developing a decision, as important as quitting smoking, it is important to use ethics with your critical thinking. Even when you’re not considering ethics, somewhere in the process ethics are either consciously or subconsciously used or woven into our critical thinking. Why are ethics a concern in an academic environment? Use the University Library to locate a specific example of an ethical violation in an academic environment. Provide a brief summary of the example, along with an explanation of why you chose this example. Ethics are a concern in the academic environment because students should do the right thing to accomplish their classes morally correct. Ethics test a student’s will power. So many people would rather do the easiest way to accomplish their work. Even if it doesn’t mean doing the right thing they’ll do it anyways. There are so many examples of unethical things that are done in the academic environment. Some of those examples are bribing teachers to raise your grades, plagiarizing or hacking in to change your grade. When someone does something......

...(Chartered Financial Analyst) qualification from the USA, which has become the worldwide qualification for investment managers. The CFA requires further part-time study by correspondence, usually with the support of an employer. The knowledge and skills provided by both undergraduate degrees is highly valued by a range of other employers. Many of our outstanding graduates choose different careers despite the strong demand for actuaries and financial analysts and the high salaries currently on offer. * Why study at UCT? UCT was the first University in Africa to set up a course to produce qualified actuaries. The old adage that success breeds success is clearly appropriate. Our strong past record of success at producing qualified actuaries has allowed the department to attract the best students and staff with relevant professional qualifications and experience. UCT has produced more qualified actuaries than any other university in Africa and our analysis of performance in the professional examinations indicates that our graduates are more likely to qualify than those from other courses in South Africa. Students within the actuarial program are often able to obtain bursaries from employers especially after they establish a good track record in our examinations. We recommend that students apply for financial aid (and accommodation) well in advance of the closing dates even if they are not sure that they will need it. * Students from previously......
