What the questions parents need to ask before their child selects a university?
As a parent, you play a vital role in helping your child’s transition to higher education. As if this pandemic hasn’t been stressful enough already, young people are experiencing the most competitive year in higher education yet. Not only is the job market tougher than ever but the global pandemic has highlighted the competitiveness of the job market and the need for tertiary qualifications, causing a surge in university applications for February 2022.
Now more than ever, students will be focused on career and employability outcomes when choosing their degree. What can parents do to guide their child to navigate the daunting higher education selection process?
Philip Watson, Associate Vice President of Domestic Development at ICMS, speaks to parents and prospective students every day. “Sometimes parents aren’t sure about how best to help their child with their decisions about what to do after school. They want to offer helpful advice but they also want to tread lightly as it’s important that students take ownership of their own decisions. Knowing the right questions to ask can help students to communicate and and also consider things they might not have thought about before.” he said.
We asked for his top 9 questions parents need to ask their child about their study plans.
“These are some questions parents can ask to assist their child make a smooth transition into their tertiary studies – and ultimately a fulfilling career.”
