With 50,000 different university level courses at 395 institutions it can be tricky to know where to start your search, but there are some great websites and tools I have found that you can use to help you focus your search.

Personally I try to avoid 'Googling' courses and university websites to start with as this information won’t always be impartial or comprehensive.
