    I'm going to be starting my 3rd year of my film degree in September but I cannot imagine what I am going to do after I finish Uni.

    I stayed at home to go to Uni and I want a change of pace. I was thinking about possibly taking a masters in film studies but at a different uni elsewhere.

    I am interested in production and wonder if a masters will really help? It seems more geared toward someone wanting to lecture or write.

    My other options are to simply finish and attempt to find a production based job or try some sort of freelance based business. I have all the necessary equipment and have referances already so it is not so far fetched.

    The options of getting a job pretty much mean I will need to stay at home again.

    Doing a masters will cost a bomb, especially if I live away and will increase my debt further.

    Any ex-film students have any advice? :yeah:

    Would an apprenticeship or even some unpaid work experience not be more valuable than a master's degree for what you're wanting to do?
