Before applying to university, students will need to do a lot of research, and it’s a daunting prospect. From choosing the right course, to deciding on what they want from their overall university experience, there are a lot of factors and variables for students (and their parents/family members) to think about.
And whilst encouraging students to analyse and assess factors such as graduate outcomes, campus life, quality of teaching and entry requirements is certainly important, there’s one invaluable piece of research that you need to impress on all of your students.
Campus tours and open days are essential.
It’s not an understatement to say that a well-planned campus visit may set the course of a student’s life for years, or even decades to come. Your students may establish a memorable and personal connection with one of their shortlisted institutions that could dramatically simplify their decision making process. They may even settle on the university of their dreams!
