Choosing the right university course – Part 2Tuesday, October 06, 2015 8:30 AM
What to do if you know what you want to study at university
Following part one in our Choosing the Right University Course blog series, today’s thoughts are on what to do if you already know what you want to study at uni.
If you have a very clear idea of the career you wish to pursue then you are one of the lucky ones. How you go about choosing your university course may seem obvious, but there are hundreds of courses on offer, and they all differ even if many have the same name: for example the course content for History at, for example, Warwick, will be very different from say, York, so it’s important to do your research as there are so many pros and cons for each course and university. And then there are joint honours to consider too. You can cut down the options by thinking about how far/near home you want to be, if you want to find a course that includes studying overseas or has a work placement element, or if you know of a particular course that specialises in your chosen area (Ancient History rather than Modern History for example).
Tomorrow we’ll give some advice on what to do if you don’t know what you want to study at Uni.
