How to choose a university

Ranking isn’t everything! Here are some other things you should consider when choosing the right uni for you:

  • Does it offer a degree that will help you land your dream career? (Here are five top tips for choosing a degree)
  • Do you like the course content of your chosen degree? Look it over on the uni’s website before committing and double check it’s everything you want it to be.
  • Is it known for being strong in the area you want to study? Scope out their website to find out.
  • Does it have links to industry so you can network with STEM pros in your field even before finishing your degree?
  • What’s the campus like? How far will you have to travel to get there? Does it have student accommodation?
  • What’s the vibe like? Check out student societies, sporting opportunities and upcoming events and activities.
  • How do their facilities rate? Take a tour of the lecture theatres, labs, library and other buildings on Open Day.

That is absolutely fine too! You can kickstart a STEM career without a degree through vocational education and training (VET). Through VET, you equip yourself with practical workplace skills and technical knowledge by studying a certificate and/or diploma, or completing an apprenticeship. These are generally run via TAFE, as well as privately operated training providers or colleges. You can read more about VET here, plus take our quiz to see which VET pathway is right for you.
