Why you should start researching your college options now main image

Whether you are a parent doing financial planning, or a student looking for inspiration for tertiary studies, doing research about potential institutions that could be a viable option for you and your family comes with big benefits.

Not only will you get a head start when you get your research done early, but you will be better prepared for when you send through your various applications.

In today’s blog, we will be looking at the benefits of putting in that extra effort to research the schools that you have in mind – and what your research can reveal if you approach it the right way!


1. Beginning your research early can save you a lot of time when it comes to deciding on which schools to apply to

If you truly have a wide variety of colleges as options to choose from, it can be tough to decide which ones would be best suited when you are strapped for time to make a decision. However, if you’ve put in the effort to do your research well in advance, creating that shortlist will be so much easier!


2. When you look up articles on your planned colleges, you can get an idea of what their media coverage unveiled

Collating several articles and summarising them to draw out key points will allow you to discover unique selling points that the college(s) of your dreams offer.

Often, when you do research that is not just linked to what a specific school’s website tells you, you discover special initiatives or new courses that are planned to be incorporated into their curriculum. So, stay curious during your research!


3. You could use your research to be the base of your application essay

If you will be required to submit an application essay, your research can help you stand out from other applicants by showing your knowledge about an institution, and how you’ve highlighted key aspects of your dream college.

The fact is, when an admissions officer receives an application that has clearly been well-researched and that is based on fact, chances are that you will be in a better position to get accepted to the college of your dreams.


4. If you still have a year or so to go before heading to college, research can help you with the process of getting ready to ace your applications

It is never too early to start planning for college, and even if you only need to send your applications through in a year or so, doing research will help you to get comfortable with all aspects that you need to consider.

This includes whether a college provides financial aid, what life on campus is like and what the career prospects are for the courses that you have in mind.


Make research part of your application journey – you will not regret it!

You deserve to get the best education – so, create your research objectives early and start the process of discovering everything that your ideal schools have to offer!
