Help choosing course for uni (uk)

Postby Callum H. » Tue Apr 19, 2016 8:53 am

I am a college student trying to decide what university course I should try to do. For a career I want to do development of temporary sensory neuro prosthetics (or in other words simulated reality). Unfortunately I can not find a course that I believe would go well with this and am looking for advice.

I am in the wrong field of science and cant really help with giving you specific advice about whcih course to chose. However my advice would be to do as this forum often suggests ie to network. Contact (preferably by phone or face to face) people who are working in the field that you are interested in and preferably in the type of position that you would like to get after your studies. When you talk to them ask them about how to get to that position including which courses to read. Not only will this give you relevant advice regarding your choice of courses but it will also allow you to start building a network that will be very helpful in the future as well.
