APPLYING FOR UNIVERSITY
Asked by Meriem

What course in university should I do? I’m thinking about finance and business sector but could I receive some sort of help on how to decide? ( I like the idea of business management, maths, finance, accounting)?

Hello, I would suggest that you first decide what type of job you see yourself doing and then determine what course would be most appropriate and desirable for that job. Try to determine what skills you currently have that you would like to extend at university to become employable.

Hello there! I was in the same place a couple of years ago. You are lucky you have an aptitude for and enjoy mathematics. The best thing for you to do is to opt for either straight Mathematics, Computer Science, or Economics. None of this may sound like 'Finance', but let me explain myself. Employers absolutely love it when their employees have a technical background in something quantitative. Doing so will really increase your chances of getting a job at the top firms of the world. You will learn to code, you will learn maths, you will learn so many transferable skills that will help you in professional life and beyond. Go for it! If you need help in your personal statement, I'm a message away. GoodLuck!

Hi Meriem, I would recommend looking at the universities you'd like to apply to and reading more about their courses. Each course will have a description but more importantly a list of modules or subjects. The list of subjects will usually give you the best indication of what sorts of things you'll study! If you have any more questions or need any more help, feel free to reach out.

Oxford grad student and highly resourceful tutor with 12 years of experience.

I’m a sought-after tutor with twelve years of teaching and tutoring experience in Canada, the United Kingdom, Jamaica, Czech Republic, Bahrain, and Ghana. I taught at a private school in Bahrain for six years, and for four of those years I was an IBDP Literature/IBDP Language and Literature teacher whose students not only achieved some of the best results in the school, but achieved results that often exceeded IB world averages. With my experience as an IB teacher, tutor, and examiner, I’m highly attuned to the requirements and expectations of the IB programme; I have a well-rounded understanding from the vantage points of teacher and assessor. I’m in possession of excellent IB materials, resources, and exemplars. Many students have earned 6s and 7s under my tutelage. I can transfer this knowledge and expertise to A-level and GCSE tutoring as well. I’m familiar with 11+ entrance exams and have extensive experience preparing students of all ages for different standardised tests. I instil lifelong study skills in my students. As a certified SAT Associate Supervisor who has administered and invigilated over ten sessions, I have expert knowledge on SAT preparedness, content, time management, and essay writing. I've helped numerous students with their UCAS applications, university interview preparation, and personal statements. For those who are English language learners, I have considerable experience teaching English as a second/foreign language. I’ve prepared students for the IELTS and I’ve helped numerous students in Canada and Czech Republic (of varying levels of English proficiency) with conversational English, grammar instruction, and speaking/listening/writing/reading activities. I’m committed to my pupils’ academic excellence by encouraging their intellectual curiosity. My teaching style fosters independent inquiry, and I pride myself on my passionate, engaging, student-led lessons that empower pupils to take ownership of their learning. I encourage my students to analyse and think critically, and my ultimate goal is to provide students with the analytical tools to continue their studies independently with confidence and conviction.
