The purpose of the present research is to analyze and explore the opinions of Fălticeni town high school graduates, on the choice of universities that they want to continue their studies, then choosing faculty (profile, specialization) where they will be trained for their future profession. Then first thing taken into account was the ratio of students admitted in the first year of higher education studies in a given academic year, expressed as a ratio of the number of students enrolled in the final year of upper secondary education in the previous school year. For the indicator highlighted and previously enunciated, we conducted a statistical survey based on the data collected from three high schools in Fălticeni town, from Suceava County, schools with different specializations and different profiles of study. In recent years, countries have increased the diversity of education programs. This diversification has been driven by an increasing demand for upper secondary and evolving curriculum of general knowledge taught in general programs and practical skills reserved for professional studies to complete programs that include learning, but also to lead to more flexible ways of further education or employment.
