Things to think about when choosing

Choosing a subject and course to study at uni can seem a daunting task. There are so many choices to make that you may feel overwhelmed by it all. There is no one course which suits everyone, so we know how important it is to find the right one for you. The best way to decide what you would like to study is to ask yourself the following questions. 

  • Which subjects interest me?
  • What are my talents?
  • What job would I like to do after attending university or college?
  • Which academic skills would I like to improve?
