Right, I started designing websites when I was 10, back in 2000. I knew I wanted to learn as much as I could, so I read and read and read. I am now 21, and in a University in London, studying web design. I am now in year 2, and we have JUST started BASIC PHP. Yes, I have paid £7,600 and just started PHP. Last year consisted of... HTML: <html> <head> </head> <body> <p>Hello World</p> </body> </html> < USELESS and out dated lectures in Digital media, such as black and white TV... Studying stuff about picasso?? And Very basic Flash. So this year, I am learning c# (which is useful I agree...) Basic PHP Excel........ and more POINLTESS digital media, plus learning Adode Director (who ever uses that..) My point is, I WISH I had never decided to waste my money going here, but I I am actually FAILING, because the things I do are so simple I just don't do it. I am in a lecture right now, and a visitor came in to sign up to an extra short course about how to use.. Twitter, Facebook, and LinkedIn. LOL! And people are lapping this stuff up! Me and my friend, both wish we never went to uni, as we both find that it takes up so much time, especially because what we are learning is so simple, I was doing it when I was 10. My advice is that, BHW is has more knowledge than any university Lecture, or course. You can learn how to get jobs, make money, learn how online businesses work and so on. There was an article in the guardian about what I am talking about, I will try to find it. So bascially, if you are looking to learn anything to do with IM, web design, SEO, what ever.. Don't even think about going to uni. If you want to learn Microbiology, maybe uni is good. What do you think?
