I'm thinking of going to university, what should I do?

Once you have finished sixth form or college you may be considering applying to university. Going to university is a really exciting time, especially as it may even involve moving away from home for the first time.

It's important to think ahead to make sure that you choose the right course, the right university and most importantly to make sure that everything is in place and ready for your first day. This means you can start your course without having to worry about any issues to do with your equipment and support needs and concentrate on making friends and settling in. Visit our ‘Choosing a university’ page within the Young People’s section to read useful advice from other young people and how to get started.
