How to choose a course

Struggling to choose a course? So did many of us.

There are many courses, and it is truly hard to choose the right course to study, even when you have already known the field of study that you are interested in.

Withdrawal of students in the first year is usually because they are unhappy with their chosen course. Considering that every course and every university is different, and that students have their individual preferences, here are four things you should consider when choosing the right course:

Your strengths and goals

Spend some valuable time on your own to find out your interests and skills. This will help you a lot in figuring out what courses that suitable for you.

You can start by choosing a field that you are interested in, and from there, think of a course that will match your skills, values and personality type. For example, if you are interested in the health care industry, courses on offer include nursing, midwifery, physical therapy, aged care and pathology.


Create a list of courses to explore and research each course. You can source information on the internet, through online programs and prospectuses offered by the different universities or schools, or even through your family and friends. 

It is also very important to visit the college websites to discover the subjects of your course and the content of each module, so you can get yourself familiar with what you will learn.

Career opportunities

There is little point in doing a course unless it sets you up for a successful and fulfilling career. If changing your career path is the reason for studying, it is crucial that you take into consideration the kind of career you wish to pursue.

"Time out”

Taking a break can be a good option if you have the resources to do so. You can use this break to travel, gain some work experience, and figure out what career is right for you. This allows you to have some time to weigh up your options and make a more informed decision.

There are endless possibilities for your international future.
