- what programme and courses suit you
- which schools have the programmes your are looking for
- what you need in order to get into your desired school
Talk to friends, former classmates and visit as many Open Houses as you can before making a final decision. Everyone has different experiences and knowledge, adults, teachers, current students of the school you are interested in - it is important to get as much perspective as possible. Your school SYV will also help you to get the answers you need in order to make a decision.
