Five ways to choose the right university course

  1. Visit open days Talk to existing students there about their experience. Get to know the staff, the courses available, the campus and the local area.
  2. Research courses online. Look at websites, videos, social media channels and prospectuses to find information about the courses available, as well as independent university guides.
  3. Check out living costs. Do they have halls of residences or will you be renting a room in a house? How does the cost of living vary between London, for example, and Birmingham, Manchester or Aberstywth?
  4. Consider travel distances. Think about how far away you want to be from home, and how often you’ll travel back.
  5. Look at job prospects Consider the employment and salary prospects you’ll have after the
    course, and the types of graduate level positions available.
