Here’s a quick guide on how to pick the right course in Federal Polytechnic Ilaro for you:
1. Ask yourself why?
Why do you plan to continue your studies? Are you looking forward to achieving something valuable and meaningful?
Try to set an outcome that you’re expecting to see in three to five years. For a high school leaver, your goal should be to obtain a higher education qualification that can boost your job search and career growth.
You can discuss your study options with your family, school seniors and counsellor. Their advice will be of great help!
2. What are your interests?
Art stream or science stream? They branch out to different fields and eventually, courses and career pathways.
It is crucial to know what are your interests to ensure you choose a course that you’ll enjoy learning about.
List down courses related to your interests and visualise your future self studying and working in those fields.
3. Consider the most important factors
Tertiary studies involve many factors. You need to first identify the key factors that are related to you as an individual:
- Money: How much are you willing to spend?
- Duration: How long do you want to spend studying?
- Subject: Which course will provide you with the skills that you’ve always wanted to learn?
- Employability: Will this course contribute to your employment and career growth?
4. Prioritise what is important to you
Try to stick with your decision and don’t shift your choices. Shortlist three best courses you are planning to study and compare them with different variables.
They could be the job opportunity, practical and theoretical experience, internships, tuition fees and more.
5. Take a reality check
This is where you have to give yourself a reality check before deciding. Can you afford the tuition fees? If you plan to study abroad, you also need to weigh on the travel expenditure and living cost.
Besides that, you are also required to score certain qualifications before you can apply to certain courses.
Also, if you scored well in your exams, you can apply for scholarships to financially support your journey as a student.
6. Future career opportunity
You don’t want to pursue your studies with zero clue of your future career pathway. Although the future is uncertain, you can start planning a guide ahead of time.
If your major promises a good career opportunity, that is a good sign to go for it.
7. Narrow down your options
Keep in mind that every course has different specialisations. For example, Engineering is divided into different areas like Civil Engineering, Software Engineering, Aviation and more.
Carefully identify which one suits your area of interest.
Once you have gotten all the information, narrow down your options to 4 or 5 specialisations.
Review the pros and cons based on the research you made. Don’t forget to consider your opinions and advice you received from your family and counsellors.
