Higher education means much more than just studying for a degree, it’s a chance to meet new people, learn to be independent and take advantage of a huge range of new opportunities.
If you are thinking of applying to University you will need to consider which subject or combination of subjects you would like to study and where you would like to study. Research and look into different Universities as much as you can before making your decision.
There’s a huge range of subjects on offer to study at University, from the more traditional subjects such as English, Maths and Science to the more unusual such as golf studies and puppetry!
Higher education is a very different experience to school or college education, a lot more is expected from you. Your tutors will provide guidance but you are responsible for your attendance, your own learning and managing your time.
You will also need to think about how you will pay for your studies and if you want to live away from home whilst you study. Depending on your circumstances, most people are entitled to apply for financial support to help them pay for their studies.
The articles in this section can give you advice on how to prepare for University and give you information on applying, interviews, studying abroad and gap years.
