We can say that the university is the last stage of our education, but it is also the beginning of our life in many aspects. Choosing the right university can be a difficult choice. There are, of course, many aspects to consider such as the location, the courses, the rankings. But the most important thing is to choose a university that suits you best.

There’re thousands of universities around the world.Finding the one that suits you is very important. When you start to research, you may be attracted by many universities and have no idea which one is the best. In this occasion, you can try using some factors to help you find the right one.

What Courses to Study

If you have favorite courses, that will be great, because you can focus on finding universities which offer these courses. If you have no idea what to study, try to ask you what courses you want to study in your university study life. Then, seek courses on CatEight, an easy-to-use online application platform which enables you to find courses and universities and apply for courses easily.

Learn More about Universities

A brochure can give you all the information you need including the facilities, teaching quality, ranking, courses, campuses, tuition fee, feedback, comments and more. You can consult with students who are studying in the universities as much as possible before starting your own research. When you’re sure where you will spend the next three years, nothing is better than a campus visit, either at an open house or a visit you can organize yourself.

My first impression of my university was during a wet spring day, which did not reflect the sunny photos in the brochure. In a way, it was better to see the reality of the place all year long. Can you imagine living on campus and going to classes every day? If so, these are very good signs that this university may be the right choice for you.

ChooseGeographic Location

A very important element for choosing your university is of course the geographical location. For me, it was imperative to leave my hometown and live elsewhere. I wanted to prove to everyone that I was independent and that everything would be fine regardless of the distance. So I started prospecting within a perimeter of a minimum of three hours from home. As I progressed in my research, I realized that the elements of choosing the region and ease of transportation were as important as the distance itself. Therefore, ask yourself where you want to live. Areyou looking for a university in a big city or in a remote town? Do you want to study near your home or far from your home?

Research Ranking

It is impossible to avoid the rankings when speaking of universities. Universities are classified according to many different criteria such as the quality of teaching, research, accessibility, student residences, etc. If you are looking for a university that ranks high, trust the statistics. However, I advise you to vary the ranking criteria you are looking at.

The choice of university is a primary choice in your study. Take the time to learn about universities, campuses and cities. Do not hesitate to seek advice from elders and guidance counsellors, it is still the best way to avoid any unpleasant surprises.

I hope these tips on how I found the right university for me will help you make your own decision. There are many things to consider, and it's not always an easy decision, but choosing the right university for you is important. Take your time, do your research and do not rush.
