Top tips

  • Find out as much as you can about the colleges, universities and other providers in your local area (and further afield if necessary) and the courses they offer.
  • If appropriate, attend open days and be prepared to get the most out of them.
  • Think carefully about your current personal and financial commitments and your aspirations for the future. After this you should be in a position to choose a subject, type of course, study mode and institution to suit your needs. 
  • Be aware that studying while juggling other commitments can be hard work. Discuss your study plans with your employer, family and friends. They may be able to offer advice and support.
  • If you haven’t studied for a while, consider taking a course to top up your skills, give you some confidence for higher education level study or as a subject taster.
