Top 8  Factors to consider when choosing a university.

paragraph
Below are the 8 factors you need to consider before you choose any university. The tips should be implemented because they will be of great help to anyone who implements it. If you are reading this and you are about to go for the application, make sure that you read to the end.
paragraph

1. Amount of fees

This is one of the most important factors to consider when choosing a university. As it is popularly said: ‘Sew your coats according to your cloth'. The financial capacity of families is different from other families. So when you are choosing, you must consider the amount of the school fees.
paragraph
It is best if you choose a school that you know and you are pretty sure your guardian or parent would be able to pay. Therefore, always consider the school fees of any university you intend to apply to. Moreover, you don't want to engage in criminal acts or other acts you won't be proud of just to pay your school fee. Not the best.
paragraph

2.Proximity

The locations of the university should also be put into consideration. If it is too far from your location you should reconsider. You can go ahead if you have relatively close to the university you are aspiring to go to. If you don’t have anyone close to the school and you still want to go you should consider renting an apartment close by. Also, make sure that the rent is payable by you or your guardian. Also, don’t forget to look and compare the means of transportation to get there. Choosing safe and relatively cheap transport is ideal.
paragraph

3. Standards of the school

All schools are different. Although they might be taking the same curriculum their standards are still different from one another. Some schools have high standards of education. Some have high learning standards while some do not. Some are narrow while some are broad in learning. The main idea is that all schools are different and standards need to be taken into consideration.
paragraph

4. History of the school

History can be used to predict the present and the sum of history and the present can be used to predict the future of something. What I am trying to convey is that history and the present situation of a university should be put into consideration. If a school was doing well and is still doing well presently, you can make a prediction that it would still do so well in the future. If a school was doing well and is no longer doing well, you can make a prediction that it would not do well in the future.
paragraph
Also, if a school was not doing well and is now doing well, you can make a prediction that it would continue to get better. Note that the previous prediction might be correct or wrong but they are always accurate. The prediction gives you an insight of the position of the university.
paragraph

5. History of your Department(course) in that university

Some university departments are nothing to write home about. I would advise that you investigate each university department on your list. Find out how the lecturers treat the student.
Also, find out how many first-class graduates there are in recent years(if you wish to graduate with one). It is better for one to keep checking his or her listed universities until one finds a university where your department is suitable for you.
paragraph

6. Level of the kindness of lecturers/profs in your department in your university

Some departments in some particular universities are strict and their marking style is hard. They do not like passing their students. It is impossible to get an A in some university departments while in some other universities the reverse is the case. So you should endeavor to check your department in each university. Then list out the university that passed the test then carry the list and check for other factors.
paragraph

7. Level of security in the university

Security of life and property is important. One should try to check the security activities in the campus area. The number of stations can also be considered because it is the security strength of the area. Few universities have security problems. It won’t be nice if names are mentioned here. This is more reason why you should make some research about a university before applying.
paragraph

8. Competitiveness

The top universities are usually competitive. It is advisable to choose a university that is less competitive so that you can get admission easily. You can go to a top university if you have a good score on your exam that you will use for application. Some of the exams are SAT, TOFEL, GRE, JAMB, JUPEB, and other examination bodies. Each exam bodies have its specific range of use.
paragraph
paragraph
In addition, the above tips are very useful so you should try to check the tips and implement them. If you are planning to enter a university, start making research on the university to which you are planning to get admission. Keep learning and make learning keep you going. Please get yourself constantly informed so you won't be deformed. Before you embark on a long course journey, you should make thorough research a make yourself very sure of the university you are aspiring to go to so that you may not regret it when it is too late to change your decision. So I would advise that you start making research on the university you are aspiring to be a student.
