28 Jul What Course Should I Study at University?

Rowan Kunz from Study TV ( responds to the question “What should I study at university?”, providing 4 simple steps to help you make the tough choice!


Rowan covers the following study skills:

– Use a course guide (UAC/VTAC/QTAC etc) to select 3-4 possible courses
– Talk to people actually working in the career to contrast the description v reality
– Go to open days
– Read uni student reviews and comments on the course and uni @
– Pick 1 course you can study for at least 1 year
– Take a gap year!

All of the strategies outlined in the above video are based on 6 years of research, with over 300 + of Australia’s top students, and 4,000 hours of experimentation.

Rowan is the founder of Art of Smart Education, an award-winning provider of academic mentoring, the author of Secrets of HSC Success Revealed, a study skills blueprint, based on research with NSW’s top students, and the founder of Study TV.

Rowan sat the Higher School Certificate (HSC) in NSW in 2004, achieving a University Admissions Index (ATAR equivalent) of 99.6, placing him in the top
265/66,000 students in NSW, while maintaining a casual job, and representing NSW in soccer. He has since completed a Bachelor of Arts (History)/Bachelor of Law (1st Class Honours) at the University of Sydney.

    I'm in the middle of a gap year and its great. Its giving me months to look into each subject and talk to people.

    My two passions are Drama and Biology. Biology would give me a solid degree and a job. I want to be creative and act but getting a job us so hard.
    I dont want to move away and there is 1 uni at a sensible distance. im screwed

    I agree so much with the gup year idea. Honestly it's the best advise to someone who doesn't really know what to study. It's an aportunity to experience real life, away from schools and parents, before getting prepared from university to really get into it. And it will really help you to anderstand what you are most interested in life and what you are reall good at. I wish I had taken one before starting university, because now, I probabl would not be wondering if I have made a wrong choice or not.

    How many subjects can you learn at university

    The great thing about Arts is that you can do anything. My recommendation would be therefore to pick 4 quite different subjects 1st semester so you can work out what you like and don't like. Then over the year start narrowing down your focus. Don't feel pressured to pick your focus straight away

    I got into Art at Monash, now I don't know what area of study to choose:/

    Town planning? Architecture can be about imitation as well.

    Initially I considered architecture, but now I'm not sure at all. I have interest in art but the thing is, my sort of art is more on imitation, not getting down and being creative.
    So I'd prefer a more technical job than one that requires creativity. Any suggestions?

    Thanks for the feedback – Yes, I agree that dot points/tables etc, would be helpful, but it is also very time consuming to add this, and I don't have much time (shooting a 5 min video as above however is something I can do fairly quickly). Would something like a whiteboard with me drawing key points help? This would be fairly easy to implement, and not increase to the time factor!

    Yes, youtube wasn't work for me most of the week (wouldn't let me upload). The good news regardless is that you will still have an opportunity in Decemeber, and early January to change your preferences for UAC, so the steps provided in this video are still applicable!
