With thousands of courses available and over 100 universities in the UK (even more if you are thinking of studying overseas), it can feel overwhelming when deciding what to apply for.
Use our ‘Applying to Uni’ pocket guide to help get you started. Some key questions to ask yourself when thinking about what course to do at University are:
- What do you enjoy?
- What do you feel passionate about?
- Which subjects are you good at and which ones do you enjoy?
There are many different reasons that people go to university, it might be to further your study in a certain subject, because you love learning, because you want the experience or because you are focussed on a specific career.
You can use the Skillsometer to find out more about what careers might match your skills as a good starting point and the careersometer to find out more about careers you are interested in. This could give you an idea of particular courses at university that you might like to study.
Think about the courses you are doing now, and the grades/ subjects you would need to get in to your chosen University and course.
You can apply to up to 5 universities or courses.
Once you know the subject(s) you’d like to study, the best place to search for universities offering those courses is on the UCAS website.
