Creative Skillset Course Directory - Find the course that's right for you | Creative Skillset How to choose a university So you have a list of universities/colleges that you like the look of - how do you narrow it down? Firstly make sure that every institution on your list does the subject that you want to study. Read up on each institution - there are many resources that you can use to obtain different viewpoints: For the 'official view' read the institution's prospectus or go to their website- here you can get the 'hard-facts' and statistics, but beware that these purely show what the university/college wants to show - they're hardly likely to tell you that the food is rubbish or that the central heating in one of the Halls doesn't work! For an independent view try reading an 'unofficial' guide. Find out what sort of location each university/college on your list is in. STUDENT UNIONS operate bars, clubs, shops and societies. Learning resources are very important as you will need them for research and further reading. Accommodation is generally the most expensive part of going into higher education.

Choosing the Right University Every course and every university is different and each student wants different things. The chances of finding a perfect match can be a challenge despite over 150 universities and university-level higher education colleges in the UK and the wide range of courses available. You will almost certainly need to decide what is most important to you. Do you want the best course or one that is quite good but offers the options you really want? So choosing the the right course at the right university for you will require some research. The more research you put into the process the more likely you will make the right decision. This will then free you up to focus on your studies and ensure that you hit the grades which will actually get you to your univeristy and your course of choice. Good luck! So how do you go about choosing a university? For some, the choice of subject and type of course will narrow down the number of possible universities to just a few. Next page: The Location
