Hi! I believe there are many other ways to introduce your essay with a direct outline of what it will be about. For example you can begin speaking about the argument your essay poses. Is university education a right or a privilege? As well as incorporating that arguments history. You can also play off of the words 'right' and 'privilege' by relating each one to attending a university.

Great ideas, Kevin.

Yes, this can be easy and fun. You might want to introduce the essay by explaining one way of thinking about it and telling why that way is wrong. That is only one of many ways you can begin. How you begin depends on how you want to answer.

Truly, the answer depends on what kind of world we want to live in. Some people say health care is a right, and they talk about social justice. Others think it is a privilege and talk about "market" justice, which says people should have health care only if they can afford it.

So what about University education? Should the government tax everyone enough to make university education a right instead of a privilege? In the United States and elsewhere, education from grade 1-12 is considered a right. Now you have to decide whether university education should also be a right.
