1. Know your priorities when choosing a university

  • University ranking- search for the data that you find the most important when choosing a university. For instance, student:staff ratio, employability after graduating from the school, student satisfaction or many other factors that matters to you. 
  • Work placement or studying abroad  -  some universities offer students a full year in an industry of your choice in order to kick-start your career. Others will give you the chance to study abroad. Depending on what you want to get out of your studies, a practical experience in the industry or exploring different parts of the world, it will help you prioritize your choices. 
  • Optional courses - Some universities will let you take courses from other subjects that you are not majoring in. So, if you are a person who is interested in different things, this is a factor that you definitely want to consider. 

2. See what sports and societies they have 

Whether you are an athlete or a musician and you are willing to keep your hobby during your studies to keep your healthy mind, it is good to check out what different universities can offer you. This will make your university life a lot more fun!
