With over 68 universities to choose from in the UK, finding the right one for you can be quite a challenge. Do your research to ensure success and a happy education. Before you decide, attend open days and read the university prospectus. Consider the following:

  • Location. Do you want to stay close to home or are you happy to move further afield? Is the accommodation suitable for you?

  • Atmosphere. Does the campus feel welcoming, and how do the lecturing staff and team engage with you?

  • Clinical environment. What learning opportunities are on offer? Are there any interesting placements? How far are you expected to travel to placements?

  • Programme structure. How is the course put together, and does it feel right for your way of learning?

  • Others’ experience. Check out student surveys to find out what’s good and what’s not about the university you’re considering.
