Advice on Choosing a Program

What should I do for a living? Do I really want to study? And if I do, what should I study? Should I go to a university or a university of applied sciences? Should I study near to my family? Or somewhere further away? Deciding what to do after you finish school is one of life’s first big decisions. Some people like to think about the pros and cons, others decide more intuitively. Regardless of how you make your decision, we can support you.
