Planning for your future Next steps to study

Next steps to study

I know what I want to study - what else do I need to know?

Once you’ve picked your top preferences, what’s next?

Passionate about law? Consider expanding your options with a joint degree, you could do law and science, law and business, or even law and arts. Joint degrees broaden your career opportunities and allow you to study more of what you enjoy.

If you're aiming for one of the competitive courses like Medicine, Dentistry, or Veterinary Science, make sure you're covering the key criteria they look for on the application - like getting practical experience. Given the competition, make sure you research alternate healthcare courses you can add to your preferences as well. When you're aiming high, a safety net is always a good idea.
