As a student who uses this website from time to time, I'm quite interested to find out how many other users are out there studying.

To be included in the realm of studying is; High School, College, University - postgraduate, undergraduate, open - young and old! .... and any others you might think of.

I find it can be an excellent vehicle for procrastination when you should be revising and is always a worthwhile distraction.

I'll start it off;

Bsc Marine and Coastal Resource Management , Aberdeen kings College University, UK

Happy studying!

My course is BA (Hons) Landscape Architecture. I'm studying at the Birmingham School of Architecture, part of the Birmingham Institute of Art and Design, which is now controlled by Birmingham City University - resulting in lots of acronyms!

I'm in my final year, although I've taken a lot of time out to travel and visit places instead of reading about them in books, so I'm actually in year five. Invaluable experience, and hopefully I'll not cock anything up and continue heading towards a high grade.  thumbsup

I left secondary school in 2008, and studied Music Performance at BTEC 1st level (BTEC Wiki page) and went on to study the higher, A-Level equivalent but dropped out after 3 months due to a lot of "unsavoury" characters in my class. Now I'm waiting for September to come around again and I'm looking at doing an A-Level equivalent IT Practictioners course, as that's my 2nd main interest, with a hope of going off to do a degree in Web Design/Management in 2 years time.

Good luck, I really, really hate exams. My degree is 100% course and project work, luckily.

I have a tutorial tomorrow/today - meaning a 500 mile round trip from home to university for a 45 minute appointment. At least I get to know if the work I've done over Christmas is on the mark though.

Good field to study this day in age.

It's not even that I'm looking to get rich from anything, I love playing music, writing it, listening to it, but I just hate it when done as a legit qualification. I don't need a piece of paper to prove I can play an instrument (even though I have one). I'm interested in web design but I know nothing about it, so time to whip out the HTML for dummies book!  Silly

I read that it was a bad field to study because the market is saturated with too many people doing exactly what I want to do, is this true?

You're gonna have a blast. My parents lived in University Park while I was in college (2003-2008) and whenever I went home, half of me wanted to transfer. The women are gorgeous and the nightlife is great. Join the right fraternity, and you've got it made. The SMU experience is like none other, especially now that football team can win games.

As for me, I'm doing three online business courses at the University of Maryland. I want to qualify for consideration for admission to the Simon School of Business at the University of Rochester for my MBA.
