Choosing the right course is an essential step in ensuring that your university years are memorable, but making that decision isn't easy. So before you fill in your application form, ask yourself a few questions:
What should I study?
Research shows that if you pick a course you're really interested in, you're more likely to get good results. Remember also that by studying for a degree you are increasing your employment and salary prospects as employers value the skills and experience that graduates gain.
Make sure you pick a course because you are interested in the subject, not because someone else thinks it’s a good idea.
Where do I start?
Why not visit our list of courses to browse all the subjects you can study at British University Vietnam?
If you know what career you want to follow, talk to careers advisors, professional organisations and people you know who are already working in that field. If you’re not sure now what you may want to do when you leave university, don't worry, you’re not alone.
Look for a course that offers real workplace experience, or has professional accreditation or exemptions from professional examinations. Also check what options your course allows for changing your degree course if you change your mind.
How do I get on a course?
You’ve taken the first step by visiting this website. Read prospectuses, go to education fairs, request further information, speak to admissions tutors and attend open days. It’s vital that you find out as much as possible about the course you want to study and the place you're thinking of studying at.
Check the entry requirements for each course to make sure you have studied the right subjects and are likely to get the right grades.
We're looking for people who have the intellectual ability and motivation to succeed on our courses, so make sure you include work experience on your personal statement, plus any examples of your work if these are required
What if I change my mind?
If you are worried that the subjects you've taken don't lead in the direction you want to go, you could consider an extended degree programme that enables you to completely change direction.
