Attending university can increase employment choices and opportunities. Choosing your course and university though can be daunting.
To help you though this process there are several things you can do:
- Go to university open days if possible – there's nothing quite like attending an open day to get a real feel for the campus, the university generally and also for the opportunity to talk to lecturers and see the facilities.
- Check out the university websites – they are full of information and can be a great place to start if you are unsure exactly which studies you want to undertake.
If you have a clear idea of what career path you want to take, talk to people already employed in that field and see what they recommend in terms of further study.
To assist you through this process we have information and links to some of the opportunities available for you to consider.
