what's the best way to discover the right degree for you.
Think about what interests you i.e do some research into what courses involve.
Research what careers are out there and which appeal to you with the skills you think you can acquire.


If you know the career then you can decide the degree and that can decide the A levels or qualification you need.

Once you have the subject and youve looked at all the variations, then you can decide what level your A levels or access course will get you on and check out course structure and open days to come up with your five.

Its all based on research really.
Work experience can help, talking to students, knowing your own interests and strengths, going to open days and doing careers research.

All of these should help you narrow it down.

Hi malwan,

I think that the first thing you need to do is make sure you pick a topic that you are passionate about. Once you've firmly decided what topic you would like to study, I would then advise having a look at different universities and reading through the modules within the course of your choice. Modules can really differ between different universities. Some may be more research based and some may be more practical, so you'll need to find one that suits you.

Once you've picked you course, other things that are important to factor in are the location and facilities at the university. Visit the university that you choose so that you can really get a feel for the environment and the building that you will be studying in for the duration of your degree. Most universities offer many opportunities to visit the campuses either with open days or private tours.

Is there a course you have in mind that I can help answer some questions about? If so, or if you have any other questions then just let me know. I'm happy to help

Have a great day.

Hannah
