What IMC Krems bachelor degree programme should I apply for?

Lots of prospective students find they’re spoilt for choice when it comes to choosing the right degree programme. The key to making the right decision is finding the answers to lots of questions. Who should you listen to? What should you base it on – your gut feeling? The economic climate? The degree programme that your parents think you should enrol on or the one that your friends have gone for? Or is it the degree programme with the best job prospects that catches your eye?

One of life’s big decisions

Choosing what to study is a big life choice, and it takes time. It’s very important to start getting all the info you need far enough in advance. This will mean you don’t miss any deadlines or risk making the wrong choice because you’re running out of time. 

Knowing where your interests lie

Whatever subject you’re considering, it’s a good idea to have a clear picture of your personal goals. In other words, studying something just for the sake of it can work out well, but it often ends in frustration. Writing down your skills and interests is definitely a worthwhile exercise. Make lists of:

  • Things I’m good at
  • Things I’m interested in
  • Careers I find exciting
