Find the right degree course
Review of ukcoursefinder.com by R8Richard

Advantages: Finds the degree course you want - quick and free!
Disadvantages: Need to concentrate when answering questions.

*You only get one chance to choose a degree course so do it properly* is the message we get from school. Having seen the Ucas guide and read (looked at) one prospectus with hundreds more to read I was losing the will to live. But this site sorted it fo ... Read review

First timers this way
Review of Virgin Guide to Alternative Unis by fairydust

Advantages: 'practical' student info
Disadvantages: sometimes a little brief in areas you are interested in

This book is very useful when it comes down to choosing which of your six universities to accept. The individual prospectus' will have given you all the the practical information about the rating of your course, and the availability of a place in halls et ... Read review

I agree completely with Fairydust's comments about the book - those kind of university guides always look so appealing in a book shop - but are generally very expensive. As well as going to the public library, see if your school has a careers service with a library full of these kind of books. Alternatively, look the uni up on the internet and possibly contact some students to ask them their opinions of the place. by Eudora

I understand what you eman about it being hard, but the UCAS handbook wasn't really to check out, what the courses are like, just to see the codes and stuff and all you do is go in the idnex, look up your course and then research yourself! by GrUnGe_GaL
