    So not in ten years from now, but 1 or 2 or 3 or x number of years - straight after you graduate what are you going to do? Where are you going to live?

    A lot of ppl move back home with parents, but would you be able to do that after 3 years of independence? Will you wait to get a job that wants a degree or will you have to start working straight away in whatever you can in order to pay rent? Or will you go travelling?

    Ideally I want to work for a year doing any bits of work, I may travel of across the country a bit. I will idealy work freelancing then a year later go to and a masters with the money I have saved or another professional qualifcation such Cisco. (I'll be one of the few people in the country that can actually control the way the internet works).

    Either way I don't want a full time job when I graduate but if I get one offered or mamange to get one I will just do that.

    I will be 22 when I graduate so time is not on my time, I will be 23 next year (august 2005).

    Unless I get a job offer straight from uni, Ill probably move back home and slack off for a while (maybe go travelling if I have the cash).

    I would definetly be able to move back home. It's not really like 3 years of independance. We spend 5 months of the year at home whilst at uni anyway. I also look forward to going home so that I dont have to do my own washing or cooking anymore

    My parents told me that they'll help me buy my own house; I'd be a landlord and rent out the other rooms.

    I intend to get a high-flying job as well.

    I don't think I am cut out for a PHd, ok it would be nice to be called Doctor and I will have a job at the end of it but spending 3-5 years on solid research is just too much.

    Eventualy once I have some experience I want to become a consultant, it dosn't matter than I am not at LSE or Oxbridge.

    The week after having graduated in 2005 I want to commence employment in London. The ideal way for this to happen is to gain a summer internship this July/August (currently pending), to perform well in this and be told at the end that there's a job waiting for you once you graduate.

    lol - gap years are sooo overrated I am going to do a masters in law (LLM) and then decide on either becoming a barrister at the bar or a solicitor for a firm

    I have few plans (other than to work as a Dr), preferably on the Notts area. I'm certainly not returning home. I;d like to work abroad for a year or so (New Zealand/Oz), but other than that, onlytime will tell

    Might be Why, who's after me? Not the 'Guin Secret Agency again

    I can't think of anything worse than settling back in the same town as my folks. I love em to death but Cheltenham is sooooo dull! Happy with London at the moment!

    My plan is to get my geography degree from a "top uni", then do a PGCE to become a secondary teacher in a decent school. I haven't got a clue where i'll live. Probably at home.
