Good decision making tips
Attend post-application events; particularly if you didn’t attend Open Days.
Look at the course content! All degrees called 'Biology' don’t teach the same things.
Look at the paths graduates in this degree have followed; does anything sound interesting?
If you are selecting an insurance choice, choose one that has entry requirements that you are confident about meeting. Remember, this is your backup! (If you have an unconditional, you do not require an insurance choice)
Think about each campus, the facilities and the locality.
Is there support you might need and is this university geared up to help you? For example, is there an academic support team or a student counselling team and how do they support students? Take a look at our blog posts on support for disabled students at college or university and student wellbeing on the LEAPS S6 Blog to find out more about the services available.
Look at the cost of living and public transport around your university options.
Do you want to attend all of your choices? Would you actually go to each of these universities if it came to it?
Try to keep an open mind; your original plans may not be feasible once offers are received.
