There are lots of things to consider before you make a decision about what to study, and where you want to study

You may know the type of course you want to do and the job you want to get afterwards, but there are lots of other things you need to consider before you make a decision about what and where you are going to study. And because there are hundreds of courses to choose from, it can all get pretty confusing when you are trying to make a decision. Before you make any, you need to find out: What are the course entry requirements? What is the reputation of the course and the course provider? Where is the course located? And, what are the course fees?

Visit Youth Central - Studying & training page to get lots of good advice and information to help you answer these questions, and on how to register and enrol in courses.
