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;
