Government institutions (for example, the Ukrainian Ministry of Education and Science) and the mass-media do not provide the objective information to the younger generation, which goes to universities. The information, which universities provide, is also incorrect, as a rule. There are many of university rankings today. However, these ratings do not take into account that the University may be able to prepare of students for some professions at a high level. But for all other professions the University is at a low level. How the graduate of secondary school can to distinguish these high-level professions?
We have prepared the guide for the younger generation, which is entering to the universities in Ukraine. The guide describes: characteristics, which can to help for analyzing of information about the University; method of analysis of information about the University; the basic myths about the Universities in Ukraine, which replicated in the mass-media; an example of analysis: the University chosen, in which the authors teach.
