Tips on how to find a good course in London

The secret to happiness is being able to love whatever it is you do in life.  And what does this all have to do with choosing the right training course for you? It all starts here. Find the right course, at the right provider and you will be inspired to succeed.

Education institutes in London include many of the most prestigious universities in the UK, and the whole world for that matter. Moreover, London is ranked the second best student city in the world, according to the latest edition of the QS Best Student Cities.

Here are some tips to help you find the right courses London:

  • What are you really interested in?

It’s really important to think about what you are interested in, and what course you want to study. Is it because you can see your exciting, glittering career ahead? Or is it because it’s what your parents/employers want? By questioning yourself now, you can work out the exact path you want your course to take you on.

  • Focus on the detail

Every subject has so many different options, so it’s good to know the most specific interest you have. Engineering students could study anything from bio-medical engineering to civil engineering. So if you’d rather build bridges than human body parts, understand that before you sign up.

  • How do you like to study?

Hopefully you have some idea by now of how you prefer to study. And hopefully the answer is not ‘by sleeping’ or ‘by crossing my fingers as I walk into the exam hall.’ Some people prefer final exams, others like regular assignments to keep them busy throughout the year. Some like theory, others like practical hands-on application. Some like to work in groups, others like to work individually. Some like to present their assignment verbally, others prefer to create written reports. Choose a course that suits your study style, and you will be more confident in your success. Or, if you want to challenge yourself, choose a course that will take you out of your comfort zone!

  • Find out more about the people delivering the course

Whatever you want to study, it’s worthwhile researching the lecturers and unit modules to find out their research interests. And for a design-based course, attend the end-of-year graduation show. You'll be able to see students' work, talk to them and get a real understanding of what the pros and cons are of the university.

  • Check out the support networks

Everyone wants to have an amazing time at university, but when the going gets tough it's important to have a strong support network around you. When you are on a course such as nursing, which is emotionally, mentally and physically draining, you need people around you who you can turn to.

  • You can always change your mind

Yes, this is an important decision. But if you get there and you realise you’ve made a terrible mistake, it’s not too late. Talk to the student counsellor on campus, and see if there are better options for you there. Don’t spend the next five years of your life staring at textbooks you have no interest in whatsoever.
