The following resources have been provided on this page to prepare you for choosing the right courses for the right reasons:

This is unquestionably one of the most important times in your educational life so far. It is important, therefore, that you make sure you research and consider your options carefully. Ask lots of questions and talk to as many well-informed people as possible, just as you would about any other important decision in your life.
