What should I do to prepare?
Ask for college prospectuses beforehand. With so many colleges exhibiting at Which Course Virtual Week it’s a smart idea to investigate what each one has to offer. Certain colleges will cover the same or similar subjects, while others will specialise in certain areas.
By reading through the prospectus you’ll know if a particular college or course provider is a good fit for you. It’s also wise to consider the practical aspects, such as how many hours a week you’ll be in class and how far the college is from your work or home.
Finding the best course for you means considering the college, the area of study and where the course is being held. If you have all the basic information beforehand, you’ll be able to ask specific questions during your appointment, instead of general ones. This will help you refine your search and choose the best course for you.
Which course subject should I choose?
This is an important decision – and a difficult one. The more interest you have in a subject, the more likely you are to be successful. Choose a course that interests you and a subject that you are eager to learn more about. Choosing something that doesn’t stimulate you is a recipe for failure. Some fields of study are vast, and you may not know where to begin. That’s where your appointments can help. If you know the general area that you are interested in, such as business, research the colleges that offer courses in this subject, make appointments with them during the event, and use their advice to make your final decision.
What type of course should I pick?
