How do you identify a suitable course? What should you do for your further study application?

  1. Self-awareness
    1. Get to know yourself as early as possible, so that you’re better prepared for choosing your study stream
    2. The best time for knowing your interests and abilities before studying for your degree is during secondary school education
    3. Reading, travelling and extra curricula activities are helpful for gaining new experiences and in offering ideas about what you would like to do in future
    4. More activities can be found in our events calendar.
    5. It’s normal that you might not know what to study, but do make sure that what you have chosen suits your interests and that it offers good prospects
  2. Research your study stream
    1. It is better to do some research about the course you are interested before making your choice
    2. Science students are able to switch to arts upon concluding secondary school education, but it’s not possible to switch from arts to science
    3. There is regardless a requirement to study science after form 3
