Top 10 tips on choosing the right uni or course
Universities: Posted 6-8-07 Deadline - No Deadline
Tom Betts from Bond University writes: Top Ten Tips for Finding the Right University & Course for You: 1. Picture yourself in 5 years. Where do you want to be working? What do you want to be doing all day? With and for whom do you want to do this work? And where in the world? You don’t have to have all the answers, but only you can try to find them. 2. Talk to your careers advisor and get their advice. He or she is experienced and trained to help you. They know what you are going through and can tell you how best to arrange your preferences when you apply. 3. Ask the universities about their class sizes- how big are their lectures and tutorial classes?4. Talk to the universities you are considering and find out the job prospects for graduates of the course you are interested in – what are their graduate employment rates and average starting salaries? 5. Talk to your family. Understand that they mainly want you to be happy and secure. It’s your job to let them know what is important to you. 6. Talk to students or graduates of the universities you are considering, especially those who are enrolled in the degree you are interested in. Ask them about their experience and what advice they have for you. 7. Be a ‘spy for a day’; that is, go to the universities that you are considering on a normal teaching day and get a feel for campus life. 8. Talk to the department you want to study in. Ask them about career paths and opportunities for relevant work experience. If they don’t seem very helpful, steer clear of that uni. 9. Ask permission to sit in on classes, especially smaller tutorials. Is the experience stimulating, or are the students bored? 10. Be brave and aim high. You don’t have to get it right the first time. There will always be a way to realise your ambition. If students or parents would like any further advice regarding future career options or guidance on how to work through the university application process, Tom is happy to help. Contact Tom Betts on (07) 5595 4081.
