If you know you want to apply for uni then you have nearly a year until your UCAS application deadline for 2020.
But if you're clever (and we’re sure you are), you'll want to be as on-the-ball as Cinderella’s godmother and get your application right at the front of the queue. That means getting it submitted by around half term this Autumn.
Still think you've got ages? Just think about all the lessons, summer exams, Saturday jobs, parties, holidays and procrastination you've got to fit in. Blink and the year will be gone...
In all seriousness, by next academic year, you’ll need to know what/where you want to study, so you can focus on having the best experience possible.
The Summer's a bad time for deciding anything, with exams and everyone going away. So between now and April, you’ve got time to work out what’s important to you. That’ll involve visiting some unis maybe and exploring who offers what.
Researching all these uni options can be confusing, but we’re here to disperse the clouds. Have a look at our Which Uni? Section for some pretty decent start points on your journey.
Whether you're making a serious short-list or just playing around, it’s time well spent – it will start to help you focus your mind as much as work out where is right for you. The earlier you do your research, the easier it'll be when it comes to crunch time.
If you know that uni's not for you, worry not. It’s far from the only path, and isn’t right for everyone.
Maybe you’d prefer to head straight into Work for on the job training, or a mixture of industry experience and studying that’s offered by an Apprenticeship.
Maybe you’ve not got the foggiest. That’s fine, too! Why not head over to our No Idea section for some inspiration?
