What, where, how to study

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.
