Choosing the right course and University
1. University Application in the UK is competitive, and so is the job market.
2. Students do well at University in subjects that genuinely interest them: they enjoy themselves, tend not to drop out – and they
get a good degree.
3. So choose a subject that you will enjoy and will do well in!
The priority for this term is to research courses, universities and apprenticeships in detail.
The key to competitive application is a well written personal statement and super curricular activities.
