How to Choose a Course

Questions to ask yourself

On choosing courses

  • What do I want to study?
  • Do I want a vocational course that will train me for a profession e.g. Radiography or do I want to study a subject I really enjoy e.g. Physics and specialise later on?
  • Should I study a completely new subject?
  • Can I combine subjects?
  • How do I want my course to be assessed – modular, coursework, exams?
  • Do I have the required entry grades for what I want to study?
  • Where can I study this course?
