    I'm 25. I have just found out that i failed my first year course at university by one exam (unrelated to web dev). I still want to get into this field. I was thinking about applying to another university but since my finances wont be covered i dont know if i'll be able too.

    Would it be OK if i emailed a list of agencies to see if they would consider me for an appreciship-type role OR even a junior position? I just dont know if my CV/Portfolio are strong enough at the moment and since i never finished my degree its only going to hinder my situation since alot of places want graduates now...

    I have over 1 year exp at a software agency and have done around six freelance projects (html-css-js/design/seo) over the course of 3 years. I'm not particularly skilled in anything else other than IT related areas, it's where my passion is and nothing else really interests me.

    Could someone help me out to decide what the best action would be for me to take?

    If you're after a serious response,


    Take a junior role.. Given that you've had experience with freelance projects then don't bother with an apprenticeship. After a few years in the Junior role then you could consider going back to university if it bothers you that much.. Perhaps consider going to an online university (WGU perhaps).. Their fees are incredibly cheap and the degree can be completed over a long period of time, such as 6 years..
