Now- a- days private professional colleges (Engg.,Medical,Judicial, Management, para medical and so on)are increasing day by day.Any degree can be purchased and sold with money. Charm of education has gone out of track.Students are not so enthusiatic for their admission and studies.They think that their parents can do anything for the degree.Professional degrees are termed as general degree.What do you think?

there is no restriction for the admission of these professional courses and anybody who completes the higher secondary can join it.No student is now trying hard as like we did to get a seat in professional coure.Just money is the only criteria to get the seat and the parents are also paying it without any hesitation for the sake of pride that their wards are professional.There should be severe revolution in the education system so as to eradicate this type of getting degree and hence degrading the value of education.

a degree in Medicine should not be able to buy a student should have to go thru all the years of schooling to get one even tho it takes 10 years I wouldnt like to be looked at by a doc that has bought his or her certificate by buying it that is just wrong! Parents cant do every thing if their kid is to lazy to study and PASS trhe test to get the degree

Only accredited schools will have the backing to help you get a job. Employers look for the better schools and proven certification. Just buying a certificate will be found out and possible prosecution could follow. Legitimate schooling and learning will the way to a good job and decent money for long term. More precise college education is the one to win also.

There have been spurious degrees and diplomas around for years. The BIG difference is that the people who need to know (ie your boss) will know the real degrees from the rubbish. You, if you are honest, will know the real degrees from the rubbish in your proffession. The only people who are fooled by purchased degrees are the public who know nothing of your proffession. So in a nutshell, with useless degrees you are fooling yourself and degrading yourself amongst your business peers.

Are you talking about the on-line degree courses? I think those degrees are maybe nice on paper but do not hold much weight as far as prestige of coursework. I do not think hospitals or corporations would look at those type of degrees in the same favorable light. Also, are those credits transferable to a real brick & mortar college? Are those degrees adaguate for state licensure?

Well it is no wonder when people with these professions come to our country that they have to undergo an examination and more education here before they can practise on any of our people,. As in our country you cannot purchase a degree you must do your 4-5 years of university degree to pass to be a professional.
