    You can make things like animated movies with that sort of stuff?

    I looked at one students work :eek:, incredibly impressive. If you get to learn to model stuff like that... #Strong

    Ye 2 of the students made this as their final project and won a bunch of awards for it https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WkmCYyOnjRk

    And some of them make games and other random stuff lol.

    What's the case? Will have a look on BAILII, have basically ignored any actual legal developments since exams started and just general law since they finished!
    I said next week for a reason! It's vaguely about ESA descriptors though. LPC is boring as hell aye? (my sister did the 'accelerated course' or something, and said not only is it massively boring, but there's a mind numbingly large amount of info to absorb.) She had a February~ start though afterwards. Guess you start around September?

    That video is incredible. The detail.. the shadows.. no wonder the university is rated the best in that field. For a couple of grads to have made that (I assume from scratch?)

    Intended Career:

    Hopefully work as a quant so that I can work on derivatives/asset pricing/financial risk management.



    Reasoning:
    I love mathematics especially when it is more applicable in sense of finance and/or economics. For example, theory of derivatives pricing and hedging in context of no arbitrage, theory of optimal investment and consumption in context of portfolio theory. Passion to specialise in financial maths so that I can acquire in-depth knowledge of abstract probability in sense of measure theory, SDEs (Black & Schole is one example), martingale theory (sub/super etc), Ito, BM, stochastic processes and its analysis, radon-nikodym differential etc. Levy processes so that I can understand the actuarial concepts too.

    Intended career: commercial pilot, airline or private jet, I don't mind

    Reasoning: flying is my second favourite thing. Aircraft are my first I love travelling and I can't see any good reason why I wouldn't want to turn my love of aircraft and flying into a career. There's nothing cooler than watching a fully loaded 747 or A340 take off or land.

    How I intend to get there: get degree in air transport management, then either try and aim for sponsorship to pay for pilot training or get a managerial job and build up a big enough fund to pay for it. It'll take a long time but I know it'll be worth it in the end.

    All the best. I never knew how someone became a pilot. I always thought they needed a degree in aeronautical engineering, fml.

    Intended career - Pursue a career in architecture
    (built environment related e.g. landscape architecture or architecture and urban design.

    Reason - Because architecture is so much more than just the practise of designing and planning buildings/structures.
    It's the story of civilisation... architecture enriches lives in our communities and suits our needs in a 21st century world like this. My art teacher first introduced this discipline to me a couple of years back and she told me that architecture was more poetry and art than raw construction.

    Steps - Study at UCL, NEWCASTLE, SHEFFIELD OR OXFORD BROOKES (I dont know why I've capitalised those <<) for my Bsc/Ba degree. Take a year out in industry as part of my 'Part 2' and return for March (Part 3).

    Thank you There are so many ways to do it, a degree and a levels are by no means necessary. Some well off people just pay for the training and then apply to the airlines at the end of it and walk into pilot jobs. They are lucky.

    Really intriguing reading other people's future plans.
    Personally I'd like to be a teacher - good pay, decent work hours and days and I've always seemed to admire my teachers throughout school. When I was little, my parents got me an easel and I used to pretend I was a teacher. Not entirely sure what subject I'd like to teach as I'm unsure of what degree I want to take, but I seem more inclined to want to teach GCSE and A-Level.
    Finished my GCSES last year, beginning my A-Levels this Sept (Eng Lit, Religious Studies, History of Art and Maths). I think I'll most likely do a degree in one of those subjects (bar Maths) but that's obviously dependent on my AS and A2 results. Then after my undergrad, I'll do my PGCE in whichever subject and hopefully become a teacher! Maybe after a few years I'll even do a Masters in a sub area of my degree...


    I like to think I have my future all meticulously planned out but I don't have a ****ing clue if I'm truly honest :lol:

    I'd like to get into banking; either wealth management, or, if I get in investment banking, the trading/quantitative analyst side, or sales. Either that, or financial services (finance directors/officers/managers). I've had ideas about gaining enough experience/years of work here, in the UK, so that I could then move to somewhere like Zurich or Dubai, and continue my career there. Money (and SAVING UP money) is my only motivation. If I had to include one other, genuine thing, I really like the idea of continually working and doing something. I want to be working 14 hours a day, continually earning. That would be a win-win situation for me... I'd be so, ridiculously glad of my life, that I'm out there, doing, using my brain, and living. That's happiness. If what I'm writing here is even remotely tantalising you then don't you dare disagree with me... Additionally, if I were living and working in Canary Wharf, I'd be darn happy. I love the area around CW, Stratford, Surrey Quays and the Docklands. Would do anything to buy a modern, high-rise, luxury flat there, like in Pan Peninsula, even if I wasn't working there. Just generally, that's my dream location. Property values there are pretty low IMO too; great investment. I've thought through many things for a very, very long time now, and I know that'd be my dream life... The absolutely ideal, and fairly unlikely dream would be to be living the models and bottles, bachelor-esque lifestyle. If not the former, I can and certainly will become try to 'be' a bachelor. Hopefully I would have my dream car too, like a Jaguar F-Type, or an AM Vantage, and the financial means to frequently travel in the car, around the UK and parts of Europe.

    Nice, modern apartment, epic car, and the financial means to travel about on holidays and random excursions (literally, just visiting towns around the UK, for example), in and out of the car, with a bit of money leftover to not just go over to a high-street shop to buy clothes and things (i.e. be able to regularly go and buy in Westfield, Central London or Carnaby Street). My goals. My dreams. My detached, disillusioned teenage years. Zero actualities...

    Intended Career: I intend to find a role in software management, or some sort of computer science related job.

    Reasoning: Computer science related jobs are probably the best ones out there - great pay, fun to do and it is a key part of the future.

    Steps: I mainly research and study at home, and now I have the chance to take Computing, Maths and Chemistry at A-Level which is what I need to go into university-level education. From then on, I will continue to practice different programming languages at home and hopefully join Microsoft or something similiar as an apprentice, and then start my own business of the sorts.
