Thinking about your next steps can be scary.

Whether you’re in year 12, have just finished a gap year, or want to go to university after years in work, making these decisions can be daunting. However, it’s also really exciting—it’s a chance for you to explore your passion, gain independence and take your next steps in your educational journey!

A lot of people decide to go to university after school but this pathway is certainly not the only option and not necessarily the best choice for everyone. It’s important that you explore all of the pathways available to you.
