Choosing the Right Course of Study

Choosing the right course is a big decision and it is important to get it right, as it can impact your future success, and for those doing a course they are not happy with, nothing is set in stone! List the fields of study that interest you, and come up with a list of courses you would consider studying based on these interests. Add the topics that you were most interested in during school as well as jobs that you envied others for.

This is not necessarily what are you good at, but what you love doing? You might be great at maths, but you spend your weekends fixing up bits of old computers. So don’t study maths, focus on IT or computer engineering instead. Specialise in your passion, and learn more about it from the world’s best teachers.

It’s really important to think about why you are interested in this subject. Is it because you can see your exciting, glittering career ahead? Or is it because it’s what your parents want? By questioning yourself now, you can work out the exact path you want your choice to take you too. You need to choose a degree based on your personal strengths and your goals.

Let us take you through the options. Most importantly, the right degree will help you develop skills for the long term, for your career and personal development. These might include, for example, problem solving, strategic and analytical skills, thinking creatively, and assimilating new ideas.

Read expert advice on Guardian Careers about taking your career up a level and advice on choosing the right qualifications. When choosing a course, let your parents advice you and not choose for you. The course you study determines your future. Do not choose a course because your friend is studying that particular course.

Choose a course you are passionate about, if you choose a course simply because someone else studied it, you might not be able to complete it because of your lack of passion for it, or you might not come out with a good grade.
