I would describe it as the ultimate resource for anyone who is in the process of choosing a university to attend.
What made you want to write a book on 'How to Choose a University'?
I just wanted to provide value to someone. Anyone. I know that for practically everyone who has ever been to university, they can recall the difficulty they faced when trying to choose amongst their options. At the end of the day, it is a really big decision. It’s going to affect where you’ll live for the next 3 years of your life, and the wider implications will be felt for the rest of your life. So I just wanted to be able to provide help to anyone who was facing a bit of difficulty in trying to make a decision about this.
That being said, there was one particular type of person that I had in mind who I wanted to benefit, which I think really prompted me to write it. I wanted to help anyone who was in the same position that I was in about 3 years ago. I was the first person in my family to ever attend university, like thousands of other people in this country. And if you’re from a small town or village, it can be really hard to find people who you can receive great advice from about choosing a university. Other than my teachers, there was no one I knew who even went to university.
As a pupil in school, you don’t really want to be asking your teachers about it either. You’d rather seek advice from someone just a few years older than you, or from someone who has just left university, and so I wanted to fill that role for people who might not otherwise have someone of that nature to listen to.
