Choosing to attend university is a big decision and there are lots of factors to consider that may vary for each individual. Not only can Higher Education open many opportunities for your future and help you achieve your career ambitions, it can also help with personal growth, development and independence. University students often gain valuable life skills such as critical thinking, problem-solving, communication and time management, as well as making friends for life.

However, university is not the only path to success, and there are alternative options such as vocational training, apprenticeships or going directly into the workplace. The decision to attend university should be based on your own personal goals, interests and aspirations. Additionally, the cost and commitment associated with university should be carefully considered.
