Choose your university and course

Before you choose

  • Talk to a careers/guidance adviser.
  • Visit to get more information and compare the courses and universities that interest you. When you apply, you can select up to five choices.
  • Do a keyword search on UCAS – if there’s a specific course title or course combination you want to do, type it directly into the UCAS course finder engine.
  • Do your research carefully – check out university websites, as well as UCAS, so you get a real feel for the place.
  • Consider the course content and not just its title – English at one university is not the same as English at another university.
    Check the entry requirements – will you need specific subjects (including GCSEs) or work experience? Are you on track to achieve the grades you need?
  • Attend university open days – see our handy checklist for suggestions on things you could ask about. If you’re considering Anglia Ruskin, we’d love to see you at one of our undergraduate Open Days.
  • Get advice from friends, family and school staff – but don’t forget the ultimate choice is yours.
  • Try to get to a UCAS HE Fair where you can pick up prospectuses from lots of different universities and speak with their representatives.
  • Have you chosen courses with a range of entry requirements? Try to maximise your chances by making your ‘Insurance’ option a course with lower grade requirements than your ‘Firm’ choice.
  • Think about a range of universities with different entry requirements.
  • Above all you should be comfortable with your choices: it’s all about finding the ‘best fit’ for you.
