Why has bestCourse4me been developed?We felt that although there was a lot of information available to young people about careers, employability and university study, there was no one place which linked these. Nor was the link made clear in a lot of places. And there was definitely no place that linked A-levels studied, universities, employability, and career options.
At bestCourse4me we wanted to make the link between these clear, by looking at data from previous years. We also wanted to show how important not only the degree is but also the subjects and which university you choose.
As a part of this we also wanted to increase social mobility and encourage students to reach their full potential and universities they may not have otherwise considered for reasons of background or lack of encouragement rather than because they are lacking in ability.
Who is it for?bestCourse4me is for all students who are considering higher education (or not) or who aren't sure which career, course, university to attend or what is required. It is also for their parents and teachers or anyone else who wants to help and advise them, to make the right choice.
