For a few years now I’ve been contemplating doing a degree through the Open University. At first I couldn’t decide what subject to study; several subjects interested me, and I was often thinking about studying either French or photography. The more I thought about it this year, less sense it made to choose anything other than computing, having worked in IT for 15 years.
Having finally made a decision that I would do a BSc (Hons) in Computing and IT, I’ve now committed to it, and I start on 1st October 2016. As for the reasoning, it’s mainly for my own interest; the need to get a more in depth knowledge of IT. I also hope that it will develop my career further, but I guess that’s expected.
Let’s see how it goes.
Let’s see how it goes. It’s a long time since I’ve done any formal study, and I didn’t exactly work well school, but in my mid twenties I did A Level photography in evening classes.
When I was leaving school fifteen or so years ago, I couldn’t imagine ever wanting to go to university. I was lucky when I left school, and managed to get a job straight away and that sparked my interest in computers. Since then, I have gained skills by my determination to solve problems.
So I’m starting with the module TU100, My Digital Life; an all round introduction to IT, which consists of tutor marked assessments, and fortunately, no exams.
