College can either make you or break you. It can be your key to lifelong success or be the reason for a miserable life. A lot of things can happen at this stage, and it’s not like your high school experience, in fact, high school isn’t even close.

When high school students think of college, they think of which university they want to be in and what course or program they’re going to take. That’s all good, but there are still important things that you should consider.

1. Your Program/Course

Choosing your program that you’ll study for four or five more years is something that you shouldn’t just take casually. You shouldn’t limit yourself to reasons such as passion and because your parents or relative chose that program for you. If you want to be successful in your college life, try to actually know the course you’re aiming for. Get a copy of the curriculum; try to know the requirements, the possible lessons and whether or not it will fit your current set of skills. Choosing because of “passion” is too dangerous. Do some research and try to actually know the course you want to take!


2. Academic Standing Of Your University

So your dream university always ranks as one of the best in your country, but how about that one specific course that you’re aiming for? How is that university faring in that? Remember, there are some universities that offer a better quality education in a specific field of study than those of well-known universities. Research!
