When it comes to Higher Education you have a huge range of courses and institutions to choose from.

In order for you to maximise the opportunities that are available it is really important to start thinking about what you would like to do and where, well before the beginning of Year 13, there’s no harm staring as early as Year 10.

First of all you need to get some ideas as to what you would like to do at University, then you can start looking into the entry requirements and what subjects you need to be selecting at your School or College.

When you are looking at courses you should examine the modules included and remember that even though courses may have the same title at different institutions, their content can vary significantly.
