5 soft skills we get during university studies

In the midst of the university admission campaigns, a number of articles appeared on the web calling on enrollees not to join the student flow. The main arguments of the authors of this content refer to the fact that higher education is too concentrated on needless and dead "theories", but not the things that are useful in real life.

But what I want to say in defense of high-education and the "proven scenario" for the school graduates is that studying at the university contributes to the development of some "soft skills", which employers have recently started talking about as being in high demand. What are these skills?
