Choosing a degree program
After graduating from high school (or college) a world of knowledge is open to you. You are free to choose almost any direction. The question is, which one, as choosing isn’t always easy. It is however really important to choose the right program right from the start. Doing so will save time, money and disappointment. But how does one choose the right degree program? Start by informing yourself well!
Getting well informed
Start early and take your time when choosing a degree program. Look around extensively and collect good information. Do not limit yourself only to information, given to you by the dean or from folders but also browse the books prescribed for the degree program. Browsing the books will give a good insight into the degree program. Try to talk to a student or alumnus from the degree program that has your preference. Someone like that can provide you with a lot of information not found elsewhere.
