Higher education (Universities)

Many people choose to continue their studies at a University where they follow a full-time course, usually for 3 or 4 years, in one subject or area.

The Russell Group of leading UK universities has published a guide to post-16 subject choices.

Informed Choices was produced in collaboration with the Institute of Career Guidance and is aimed at all students considering A-level and equivalent options. It includes advice on the best subject combinations for a wide range of university courses as well as advice on the best choices if you don’t know what you want to study after school and need to keep your options open.
