Is uni for you?
What's this about?
We’re here to help you through the application process – there’s loads of information on our website and we’re at the end of the phone, a Facebook post or a Tweet if you need to talk to us. Deciding to go to uni can be a tough decision, so we’ll give you all the info you need to make the right choice for you.
If you don’t think uni is for you, there is still a wide range of options available. A popular option is to take a gap year and travel the world. Alternatively, you could do an apprenticeship, which gives you a salary whilst gaining a qualification. If you fancy a warmer climate but want to get on with your studies, why not study abroad? Then there’s the option to go straight into the world of work. The choice is yours!
· I’m interested in apprenticeships and traineeships
· I’d like to take a gap year
· I want to study overseas
