I know for some people, as soon as they start looking at various universities they have a list of there first, second etc choices. When I first applied for university, I had that exact list and every year I found myself applying for the same course and for exactly the same top three university institutions (in case you were wondering these were: Bournemouth, UWL and Coventry).
Why did I always pick those three unis?
In my opinion those three universities are recognised for their nursing courses and also have a higher proportion of coursework in comparison to other university institutions I researched.
My top tips for you are:
- Research each university, that you have received an offer from and write down a pros and cons list.
- Use the University league table is of importance in making your decision then see what uni is the highest ranking uni.
- Also go onto the unistats website (www.unistats.ac.uk) and compare the courses with the rate of employment, what past and present students think of the course, how is the course taught etc.
- Don’t make any rush decisions as remember you will be spending three years here.
