Choosing a University or College

Once you have chosen the type of course you want to study you need to narrow down which institutions you would like to choose between. There are over 395 higher education providers.

  • You may have an idea about the type of institution you want to attend e.g. a traditional redbrick university, a newer university, campus based university or you may want to go to a local college.
  • Decide what’s most important to you such as: rate of graduate employment, teaching quality, student support, facilities, accommodation, location, environment, opportunities to do work placements, opportunities to study abroad and base your research on your own criteria.
  • You may want to choose a university because it has a good reputation for the subject you are interested in.
