Universities: Posted 31-7-16 Deadline - No Deadline
What should you focus on? How do you weigh up all the different elements involved? Do you want to stay local, or move far away?

Scarily, students and their families often choose to focus overwhelmingly on only some of the crucial aspects of choosing the right university and course post school, and it means that they often miss the other equally important issues.
