Choosing which university or college to go to can be a life-changing decision. Do as much research as possible so that you choose the right course for the right reasons.
You can apply to any course which interests you, but consider the entry requirements first. Some courses require particular qualifications, others require an admissions test.
To help you with your course decisions and the rest of the application process too, we have produced
