Website of the day: What Uni?

Easily one of the biggest decisions any young person can make is which university to go to. It’s not like it used to be, when a degree was pretty much paid for by the state and all you had to do was show up to the occasional lecture.

These days, a three-year course is going to set you back the biggest part of thirty grand in many cases. And that’s just the fees.

So picking the right place to spend that kind of money means you need to do your research. You can believe every word you read in the prospectuses you’ve been sent, or even the universities’ websites, if you like. But if you could talk to the students who’d already been there, that would be a lot better, wouldn’t it?

At whatuni.com that’s exactly what you can do. Here you’ll find reviews of universities written by students, so there’s no spin, no bias and certainly no pulling of punches.

This is one of the most useful sites we’ve seen for anybody thinking of a higher education. Bookmark it now if that’s you.
