Picking university courses can be extremely stressful and if you’re not careful you can end up with a really horrible schedule that can ruin your whole semester. Here are some tips to help you pick the perfect courses for you!
Are you actually interested in the topic?
The first thing to think about is if you really like the subject or whether you’re taking it just because it fits into your schedule. If you don’t like the subject very you may not like the course and are more likely to not do well in it. Take things you’re passionate about- you’ll end up enjoying the course more and will likely therefore do well in it.
Is your professor any good?
ALWAYS check your professor on ratemyprofessor before you take a course. Even if you love the subject a crappy professor can really ruin your semester. I made this mistake before and have definitely learnt my lesson.
Does it fit your schedule?
You don’t want to end up with a messy schedule that has you running from one side of the place to another so try to plan out your classes in a way that there’s enough time in between to get to your class on time. However, make sure you don’t have too much free time in between classes because then you’ll end up wasting too much time at school.
What’s the workload like?
Some professors are very understanding and go easy on you with the assignments and stuff but others are less then understanding so make sure to find the course syllabus and look through that before picking it because you may just end up with a crazy workload!
How big is the class?
Sometimes when classes are really big in size it’s really difficult to ask questions or even feel comfortable. This obviously isn’t the case for everyone but I’m more of an introvert and prefer smaller classes so if you’re like me and don’t like really big classes make sure to check before you pick the course especially for first year courses because those are usually packed.
