When you receive your offers from the universities you have applied to, this will start the next round of decisions: which of these offers should you choose? You need to select two – one firm choice and one insurance. Your firm choice needs to be your favourite university, where you really want to study. Your insurance choice is your back-up option.
There’s lots of research you can do to narrow down your choices. Think about what’s most important to you and what will help you to get the most out of your university experience – course, accommodation, location, social scene?
