The school leavers guide to…next level education

Dear School leaver….

The year is coming to an end now, and yet some of you might still be lingering in limbo.

You know, that phase where you’re not yet in the adult corporate world but also you’re not in school anymore….so you’re probably wondering, what now?

Don’t worry, we’ve all been there, feeling pressured up because it is time for the bigger steps in life.

Well, it happens to all of us, wanting to study with any University or College should not be a hard thing. Especially, if you are confident in your studies and key goals. Studying with any of the Online Universities may work well for you.

But first, let’s make sure that all your boxes are ticked to get you started. Here are some steps to help you figure out what you want to study

  1. Reflect on what you are already good at

Deciding on a career path at an early stage is something you would definitely want to explore. The first steps are very basic. Ask yourself which subjects in school you were strongest at.

Where you better at arts subjects, sciences or commercials? All this helps you to narrow down the career fields you might be a natural at.

2. Reflect on what you are passionate about.

For example, if you have always been into fitness, going to the gym, doing sport activities then you could very well consider a future as a physical education trainer. Check this online program out :http://bit.ly/BEdInPrimaryEducation

3. Find the right Tertiary school.

Start by figuring out where you want to study part-time or full-time. The truth is these days if you choose the right institution, the qualifications you receive either way carry the same weight.

But, applying for any University should be easy. What is meant to be the best step of your life, could turn to be the worst drama ever. Imagine having to run around or visit different university campuses and applying for a course only to find that you have a few documents missing or you have to stand in a queue that doesn’t seem to end. The up and down March is draining and just unappealing. Then, after all that coming back, and being told that classes are full and all those sorts of reasons.

There are trusted online university’s which are there to stop such hassles. Problem solved!

The year is ending, it is that awesome period of wanting to try something new – online studying.

Now let’s take a quick peek into the benefits of studying online.

Studying at your own convenience.

With online studying, you can even get a part time job while you study, although that might be a bit stressful balancing the two, at the end of the day, it’s your future on the line.

You need to make sure you have a strong support system to help you stay focused, get study partners or a mentor.

Lower costs

Studying online means no need to attend physical classes, which will cut down costs on travelling to and from the campus. Students who study online are often provided with online study material, so less need to buy books and when you cannot attend a live interaction with your lecturers, the videos are saved so you can watch later. How cool!
