    getting the job you want is relevant to being successful.



    hmmmmm, you can still be successful in a job you did not wish to get, so getting a job you wanted is key to your happiness to an extent but not your success

    logic dictates you'll perform better in the job you want to do, thus you're more likely to be successful

    Thats not very true my friend! Every Uni has its own different ranks and everyone is entitled to their own opinion. Low requirements is a good thing, sheffield hallam is currently ranked 51st out of 500 universitys in England how good is that?

    But go to where you think is best

    you can check rankings at this website http://www.guardian.co.uk/education/...ciences-and-it

    hope that helps...
    I didn't think we had 500 universities in England alone? :wtf:

    That's the funny thing about logic, cos I don't really remember it helping the vulcans when Vulcan was ripped apart by Nero's red matter.

    Sounds more like you are stuck up your own arse.
    So I'm stuck my own arse for preferring to be viewed as equal rather than have people look down their noses at me?!

    There is a difference between being a snob and stuck up to having your own view and opinion.

    the fact that you said:

    "Sheff uni is rather stuck up its own arse where as Sheff hallam is happy, down to earth, nice place to be."

    reeks of being stuck up your own arse, if you don't want people looking down at your university try not looking down on other universities.

    edit: lol at the neg.

    I'm speaking of my experience. I went to Sheffield Uni and my experience was of people looking down on me. I went with an open mind and no prior judgement. Same for Sheff Hallam but I perceived the students to be much nicer. The same goes for the lecturers. Sheff Uni lecturers were not as friendly, approachable and relaxed as those at Sheff Hallam.

    It is my experience and my opinion. I have not been stuck up. I do not think I am better than Sheff Uni students. I simply said that Sheff Hallam appeared to me to be friendlier. I am not a student at either. Rather I am basing my opinion on the experience I have had at both so my opinions are not even biased. Its an observation. Not snobbery by any means.

    Your saying that by stating that I believe someone to be a snob I am a snob myself?! So if I call someone racist does that make me racist too? Sorry for bringing up the R word. I have only used it as good example to illustrate my point.

    Erm.

    Why do you go to uni then? 3 grand a year seems a fairly hefty price to pay if you don't actually care about your degree. :confused:
    obviously i will care about my degree but university isnt just about education. i know it is the main thing but it is also about being independent, looking after yourself and having a good time.
    if you know what i mean.

    I would like to pursue a career working on film/tv sets. Specifically, I don't know what that is yet, whether writing, directing or camera work. Yes I'm interested academically in media studies; it's the only subject that I'm interested in to be honest. I have been advised elsewhere to do film studies with media studies which would give me a specialism. But to be honest I'm not really that keen on doing anything other than media studies or film studies/tv studies at degree level.

    There's a reason for that.
    Sheffield uni does actually offer journalism as a degree but it is ranked no.1 for that subject so which ever way u look at it Sheffield uni kicks ass! If people are serious about getting in media why don't they either do this accredited course or do an conventional academic subject but get involved with the student paper/radio/union?

    my choices in order of preference

    1 - kings
    2 - glasgow
    3 - sheffield

    as i got an offer from glasgow so sheffield doesnt matter however 3 offers would have nice, i've obviously hit a soft spot as youre sig is about weights :lol:

    im not a dentist as i will be starting dentistry in september, i will be one in summer 2016
    Soft spot? Nah, I'll take my Hallam course over yours anyday, I dont want to spend my life gawping into somebodys mouth and feel disgusted to my very core. My sig is about weights? So? You trying to insult me for having something to do to pass the time and be stronger than you?

    Sure, insult away kid.

    My teeth are rated perfect by ze dentist so i wont be visiting one again until 9 months elapse!

    My mum kicked me out of her house when I was 17, I had to get a full-time job on top of doing my A2s. I missed most of my lessons (through having to work) and despite trying my best to do it all, I ended up with CCC. If I didn't have to go to that crumby factory every day to pay for my room/ bills/ food (things most of you took entirely for granted at home), I'd have done far better. As a result, I missed out on the best unis, I accepted a place at Hallam in 2004.

    I have to admit, I meet some students from some particular disciplines and cringe at how genuinely dumb they are. It makes me feel terrible. I'm the first to declare "I'm at Hallam and I've got my smarts about me", but I've met some major idiots there, I wonder how some of them got to uni at all.

    In my subject, we did have some plebs join at the start, but all of them had dropped out by the time we'd finished our first year exams. We were a small group at the end (about 20), and almost all of those I stay in touch with have gone on to much bigger and better things (jobs at big companies, postgrad et cetera), so don't write it off straight away.

    It depends entirely on the subject you read. Hallam run courses such as "Events management", and "Hotel Catering" (along with dozens of others), which have hardly any entry requirements and do attract the less-intellectually able (sweeping generalisatin there, obvs not all), but the uni do that because it makes them money. You can't expect a bright future to fall into your lap on the back of those subjects, but they were never intended for that purpose.

    Sadly, the net result is that Hallam has a reputation for harbouring dipsh!ts. True for some subjects, certainly not most.

    whether you would rather do dentistry or do some crap course at sheffield hallam, you cant deny the fact that my prospects are considerably better than yours. if everyone was as retarded as you then dentistry would probably require CCC and sheffield hallam would ask for AAA, i personally cant see this happening. Maybe, dentistry scares you as its quite an academic course

    And yes, if lifting weights is your biggest achievement, than should you really be going to university, maybe you already know this and have subsequently chosen a poor excuse for a university (hallam)

    Why are you telling me about your teeth, do you think i care? :confused:

    Lol, as if you actually achieved something impressive - stop being such an arrogant prick, his weight lifting required much more effort than any of your "academic" achievements, and if anything it says that he's a consistently hardworking person, rather then you're average retard with AAA at A-level

    Oh, I see. I wasn't meaning to sound sharp - I just think it's more sensible to pick either a traditional course and do the training afterwards / or a course with a strong practical element so you'll have tangible skills and specialisms when the degree is finished, e.g. Film & TV Production. A degree in Media Studies is half way between the two because it's largely theory-based, and doesn't prep you as well in terms of skills for your first media job.
