    Studies and Studying

    May I ask what is the differences between "studies" and "studying".
    In the following sentence, what is the more preferable?

    "To prepare for their further studies/studying in future, we hope that students can acquire the necessary knowledge and think in different perspectives."

    Thank for advice.

    Re: Studies and Studying

    Try the collocation future studies. By the way, the sentence you provided doesn't really work. Try rewording it.
