How to choose University

This is going to have many results...

You only have to think about what you would like to do in the future…that’s what they said!

The last year of high school is something everybody waits for. Even I have.
It is the year in which you are supposed to do everything perfectly: every test,every exam,every homework,every grade…

But it is also the year in which you have to face a very important choice: what university should I go to?
The biggest problem that everybody has to deal with is indecision:What is the right faculty for me? What do I want to do after university?

First of all, calm down, take a deep breath and don’t freak out!
Choosing the right university for you does not have to be stressing, otherwise it will become a nightmare.

I know that sometimes you find yourself surrounded by people who have already set up their minds and even know what are they going to do in 2026, but trust me:those people are only the 5% of the ordinary students.
The remaining 95% is probably in the exact same situation of uncertainty as you.

How can you not know? What was your dream job when you were little?

I have always hated those people who ask these kind of questions.
Of course I know my dream job, but unfortunately I might not be able to be a pilot or an astronaut if  I’m not very good in mathematics and physics!
And as a consequence, all these suggestions eventually increase the indecision.

There are a few things you can do to avoid the choice-panic:

  • Try to think about the things you like: I know that it might be a cliché, but try to think about your favorite TV series, books, magazines…  Everything you are interested in might be a source of inspiration;
  • Ask somebody else what you should do: of course you don’t have to do what they tell you, but sometimes asking a friend or your parents what they think suits you, might be very useful to consider new possibilities;
  • Talk to your teachers and to your friends: they might be interested in a faculty which you didn’t know, but that sounds really interesting to you;
  • Visit different universities by going to Open Days and try to talk with their students: who better than them might tell you what they study there and whether you might be interested in their program;
