Choosing a college/further education
So you’ve considered the options together and your son or daughter has an idea of what and where they’d like to study. But how do you know that the course or establishment is any good?
There are a few places you can go to get information on the quality of education provision.
Unistats - compare official course data from universities and colleges, including student satisfaction and jobs after study.
Gov.uk - compare learner ratings of local colleges and training organisations, the number of students passing their qualifications and what students went on to do next.
