Student versus professional recitals

Music schools at universities require students to give solo recitals.

Students spend months preparing brand new pieces, to present them only at their one required performance.

But professional musicians play the same repertoire many times over.

Is performing a program only once really providing students with an understanding of what it's like to be a professional performer?
