1. KNOW YOUR CAPABILITY

Knowing your capability is very key when choosing a course of study in the University. Students sometimes only consider the prestige giving to the course they want to study, but believe me, this has led so many students to doom. You should not choose a particular course; because the society respects is, neither is it right to choose a course because your friends did so. The most important factor you must consider when choosing a course to study, is your ability to carry that course. Do not choose because your friends did so, but choose because you believe you can carry the work load of that course. Yes, no particular course is easy, but some are more debilitating than the other. If you fail to do this, then you must prepare to get traumatized in the school.

2. FOLLOW YOUR PASSION

Slightly after considering your capability to study a particular course, is your passion for that course. This factor is another essential factor you should consider, when choosing a course to study. Who must consider that which you love doing, and follow it up in the University by choosing a course that is related to it. Some students may think, that their passion/talents, has nothing to do with education. But the truth is that, it really has something to do with your education. Chinua Achebe( generally known as the father of the African literature), was originally supposed to be on the medical field, but he left it, because he wanted to follow his passion. Today, Chinua Achebe is respected throughout the whole Africa, as the father of the African literature. So you see, you should not choose, on the basics of profitability first, but let your passion play.


3. CONSIDER YOUR ECONOMIC POWER

Your economic power (money), is another determining factor when choosing a course to study in the university. There are some university courses, that requires very huge amount of money before a student becomes a graduates of that course. This money perhaps, may not be a very big problem to those who have it. But will be a great obstacle to those with less economic power (money). So, before choosing any university course, make sure your economic power will meet up to the demands of that course. This is to prevent you from dropping out later.

So, if you are under this category of persons, then you must consider this factor. Even at this, it is also very important to consider your course duration before choosing any course.


5. CHANCES OF GAINING ADMISSION

It also essential to also know your chance of gaining admission, if you decide to study a particular course. Especially here in Nigeria. As a student, you should know that there are some course that are tag,  "too hard to get". And as so, it very tedious to gain admission to study those kinds of course. So before choosing any course, make sure you know how difficult or how easy, it is to gain admission to study such course.


6.  EMPLOYMENT OPPORTUNITY

More so, before choosing any course to study in the University, it is important to also consider your chances of getting employed after you must have finished studying that course. I may not mention any course in particular here because sometimes, destiny differs. But i do advice that before choosing any course to study, you put into consideration, your chances of getting employed after you must have studied that course for 4 years or more.
