Are you considering applying to higher education?
If so you’ll need to do some research into:
- the type of course you want to do
- where you can do it
- whether you’ll get the entry grades
- if you want to have a ‘gap’ year first
- the course fees.
Most people go to university after Year 13, so you should start your research in Year 12, and go to open days too – ask your college if they’ve got any open day visits planned that you could join. Visit Open Days to find out when you can visit.
