5 factors to consider when choosing a university or college to join

After KCSE results were released,candidates have been researching and consulting on the most suitable courses and the perfect universities and colleges to join.Here are the factors to consider when choosing a university or college.

1.Geographical location

This entails proximity to the candidate's home.You will decide whether to join a university near or far from home.You should consider the security of the area surrounding a university as well.You should also ask the climate of the place and total population in the university then you can choose it or leave it.Remember you abide by your own specifications.

2.Quality of teaching

To know this you can research on various university rankings and graduate's employability.Also enquire about the courses that specific universities are best known for and also be informed of the behaviour of the students in each university.

3.Cost and ease of transport

Consider the cost of living too.This involves rent,food and recreational services around the university.The issue of transport comes in here and you are adviced to find a house near the campus to save on fare.

4.Programmes offered

Before you choose a university you should explore more about all the courses it offers.For me I prefer a university offering a wide range of courses because you can easily change your course to one which best suits you.

5.Wide range of options

Kenya has 31 public chartered universities and therefore you should not run short of choices.You are still eligible to revise your choices once KUCCPS opens that portal of university revision.
