So you might be looking into whether university is the right option for you. A few years ago I was in the same situation. I knew I wanted to be a primary school teacher, but I also wanted to travel and take time to consider whether going to university was the right pathway for me.
Coming to University is a massive life-changing decision, so like anything in life, finding the perfect one for you is key! I’m Charlotte and this blog post is about the things you should consider when choosing your university.
The time has come to complete your UCAS applications and this will involve writing a personal statement. This may seem daunting at first as you have to big yourself up and talk about all your own achievements and successes- but don’t worry! You should be proud to share all the wonderful things you have done!
I distinctly remember how daunting the task of summarising 17 years of hobbies, interests and skills into one piece of A4 was.
Open days are arguably the best way to seek out which university is best for you. Going to open days allows you to explore the campus and surroundings and ask questions with lectures and previous students about your course or the university in general.
My parents were always of the understanding that in order to be a Primary School Teacher, I would need to train at a University.
So, you’re approaching the time of year where it’s time to start your university applications, but you aren’t sure whether university is for you or if it’s going to be worth it.
Writing a personal statement can be challenging. Not only can you demonstrate why the University of your dream should choose you over your peer, but it is also an opportunity to express and explain what you have achieved, outside of your application form.
