    Depends. Hopefully, if im considered good enough and have had a good placement year, whoever i went with during placement will hopefully offer me a job. Or mayby if not that try for a Masters to try and stand out more. All dependent on how i do in my second and third years really.

    Depending on how well I do in the 2nd and 3rd year, I may go for Masters. After that, I'm not really sure. I think it depends on the placement I'll be doing.

    Wouldn't mind moving away though. Australia, please

    My plan is to do the bachelors degree with a placement year at a games development studio somewhere. After the degree is over I'll probably do a Masters degree, as that will also give me some time to sharpen my skills. After that I'll look for a job at a Games Development studio over here and if there's nothing, I'll start looking abroad as well.

    But none of that is set in stone beyond the bachelors degree. E.g. if I get a good placement year and they offered me a job after I finished my degree, I probably wouldn't do the masters.

    If I was ever gonna teach I'd have to teach at at least 6th form level. Then at least you can have a bit of banter with the pupils.

    If I wanted to teach, I wouldn't even do sixth form. I'd have to be a University lecturer. At least then you are guaranteed that the people in the room actually want to learn.

    I want to do a post graduate masters degree in computer science or software engineering. At the moment software engineer seems like a nice job, I've started teaching myself C++ and I enjoy it. Anyone have experience in designing software?
