Help for school-leavers

Hotcourses has set up a new website for 15-17 year-olds exploring career options and looking for education advice or information about courses and colleges. You can browse what's on offer or search by particular courses, geographical areas or level of study. The Careers Advice section has advice on preparing for specific careers, finding funding, creating a budget planner, working out student loan repayments and predicting your post-graduate salary. Students can win gadgets, CDs, DVDs and books in regular competitions and play online games, including looking after a virtual student for a week - keeping them fed, watered, studious and solvent. Every player with a surviving student can enter a competition to win a year's free accommodation. The website supports the regular hc magazine, which you can order free online.
