Knowing that you’re going to the right university and that you’re going to enjoy your course is one of the best feelings a prospective university student can have. However, how do you choose which university in the first place?
There are many different ways to choose your university. Some people want to stay close to home so they choose a local institute. Others want to experience a new town so they choose a university far away from home. Another way you can choose a university is to apply to universities that are high on the university league tables.
These universities will have been scored on things such as student satisfaction, quality of research undertaken by the university, and the percentage of students that get into their chosen career after graduating.
The higher up the league table the better the university is considered but it’s important to remember that that doesn’t mean it’s right for you. Choosing a university is an individual choice and the only way to really make up your mind is to go there.
If you’re studying a course like Medicine that requires more than the usual three years of studying then it’s really important to know you’re making the right choice. After all, there’s nothing worse than getting to your new home and realising you don’t like the campus or the town isn’t like you thought it would be.
