Students can then use these larger-scale events to move into some more focused research.
It might seem early for them to look into specific degrees, but given there are so many wonderful courses available all around the world, they’ll need as much time to dive into them as possible!
Ideally, students should base their research on their passions, their long term ambitions, and the subjects and institutions that have most piqued their interest during any university events. They can then look at degree courses across a range of countries, noting factors like:
- Course content
- Entry requirements
- Campus or city
- Student and international student populations
- Fees and funding
Understandably, this could seem like quite a lot of work for middle years students who don’t have the immediate pressure or excitement of their older counterparts.
Luckily, there’s a really easy and engaging way for students to explore their options: the BridgeU platform. It gathers essential information on 28,000 universities all over the globe, presenting it clearly and dynamically so that students can draw easy comparisons and start picking out their favourites!
Plus, students get a personalised feed of research, articles, videos and other media - as well as exclusive access to virtual events - all about university exploration and application. That will work wonders in keeping them informed and excited about their options and lay crucial groundwork for their decision-making later on.
