Know your direction and goals
Starting preparations for uni involves imagining what it is you'd like to do after uni. This will help to make sure that your decisions about uni will head you in the direction you wish to go.
Begin by thinking about your interests, skills and knowledge. Write a personal goals or wish list about what you would like to achieve throughout life. Look for a strong theme in these details about yourself. From this information pick one or two areas to start learning about.
There are several websites available designed to help students think about their directions and goals after school. The website called 'myfuture: Australia's career information service' allows students to explore future career and study options by helping you to identify your personal strengths and preferences.
