    I'm studying at Heriot-Watt University in Edinburgh, I'm happy to answer any questions you have about the course, the accommodation (I live in halls) or anything else you want to know.

    I'm not sure to be honest, it'd be great to work for a huge company like Google or IBM or something, but at the moment I haven't really put much thought into it. I'm sure I'll decide what I want to do at some point, but to be honest I'll probably end up taking the first job I can after I finish uni.

    A lot of people have just sent off their UCAS applying for CS and this time last year I had a few questions about the course etc and would have found this thread useful.

    Um, Soft Dev isn't too bad, it can be tricky because I'm a complete beginner in Java, but it's a good feeling when you start to understand things.

    I learned TrueBASIC in school and I was pretty good with that but Java's completely different.

    And why are you more suited to answer these questions ? especially when, either most of these questions are common, or everyone should be open for everyone to view collaborate/answer. This format messes and reduces the point of having a forum ( I'm having a go at you because I constantly see these idiotic threads sprinkled around the forum, it's not personal).

    Second of all, don't get me wrong but first year of cs is like kindergarten, so you aren't really qualified to answer ( when you finish 2nd/3rd year you will understand :P)
