University league tables for 2018
Are you in college or sixth form looking to continue your journey into further education at University?
Take a look at these tips:
1.Look at The Guardian University league tables
This week The Guardian published their “Good Universities Guide” for 2018. The tables are available both online and in their Newspaper. Universities change their rankings in the table each year and some have climbed by nearly 20 places, so it is important to keep any eye out! The tables measure a range of factors including student/staff satisfaction rates and student: staff ratios.
2.Order a prospectus and get yourself down to an open day!
University prospectuses are free and are a great way of comparing courses. They give you an insight into potential modules that you may be studying and make you think if you’d prefer learning about 20th century poetry or Chaucer and medieval literature!
3.Keep an eye out for their extra-curricular actives and clubs
At University it is important to have a work and social life balance. Clubs and societies are a great way to meet new people and friends outside of your course and in lectures/seminars.
4.Employability and graduate career prospects
The Guardian league tables also provide you with statistics measuring and comparing the graduate career prospects based on a 6-month basis after graduating. It is important to consider these when looking at courses and Universities.
Alternatively, once you have already started University go and visit their employability fayres and officers who can help you find employment both part-time whilst at Uni or for when you graduate.
