Help on finding a college and more.
Hello, I am currently a freshman in high school. This year I decided to take all standard classes and so far I have made straight A's. I really would like to take classes in the future that will actually be more challenging for me, and I am planning on doing that (Like AP and such) because I know that it really does not matter about grades, more so your GPA. I am just curious to what classes you think I should take in high school. I would love to be able to go out of the country for college. ( I am from the US) Preferably in the UK London area would be nice. I am interested in just about everything from politics, psychology, sociology, philosophy, theology (and any other religious studies), computer science, archeology, and anything dealing with history. I also love geography and science. I mean basically everything. I know I am not being specific, primarily because I do not know exactly what i want to do yet. I just really wanted to get an idea of what college is like outside of the country, or how it is different and how I can make it possible. I was also wondering if you guys could suggest to me some colleges that I should check out. Thank you so much for reading.
Wow, that was quite a question. First, let me start off by saying that don't stress to much about what you want to do when you get to college. The majority of people who enter college either don't know what they want to study, or they will change their mind a couple times. That is what your basics are for. They will help you determine what you want to study in to depth.
When it comes to your high school classes, I would suggest you talk to your guidance counselor about what courses to take. They will be able to help guide you in the right direction.
As for going to school in the UK, I think if would be best if I directed you to this online articles, Where Can I Study for an Online Degree in the UK?. I know the title says the article is about studying online, but these are also excellent schools for studying in the UK as well.
