Benefits of university
There are many reasons why people choose higher education:

- greater financial reward
- studying a subject which fascinates you in greater depth
- doing something entirely new
- to gain skills and experiences which last a lifetime.
Research what's right for you
But you do need to make careful choices - universities can be very different. It’s important you find the one that suits you. Through research and visiting the ones you like the sound of, you’ll get a feel for the place itself and if you’ll be comfortable studying there.
