Zoom Lens for Nikon d3500 advice please

hello, just looking for advice please for my daughter, as we know nothing about photography and it’s all a bit minefield out there to us, sorry!

Our daughter is 15yrs old and just getting into photography.

We have recently bought her a Nikon D3500 dslr camera as advised by the photography course she has started.

it came with a standard type lens, which is fine, but she now needs a zoom lens for the next part of the course she’s taking.

We've been advised to get a 70-300mm zoom lens, but it’s hard (for us anyway) to understand what is compatible with her camera and why the prices seem to vary from anywhere between £80 and £500!

some seem to be different brand, but compatible with Nikon. Some seem to be actual Nikon brand, not really sure how this all works to be completely honest!

Dont really have the money to splash out on the top end lens, but equally don’t want to buy something cheap and not up to the job!

Any helpful advice please would be humbly appreciated to these completely novice parents, who are willing to learn!

Thank-you in advance

Nikon D3 Nikon D3500
