So who here is at Uni, planning on going to Uni or has finished?

As I finish my 3 year stint, I'm interested to find out how many people from UG have a Uni qualification or are working towards one. Let us know what you are doing/did do/want to do!

Yeah, I actually grew to really dislike my course but the town and people were great. Glad to be finished and somehow with a 2:1

There is a thread already for Uni if you want to check that out, but that doesn't have a poll or anything

Just done my first year doing 'Professional Musicianship' at BIMM...has it made me a more professional musician? Only slightly but that'll do.

And like others have said, I prefer the fact I live in Bristol to the course I'm on, I think the course is good but if it were anywhere else I wouldn't have got on.

Bristol is one of the best in the UK though and requires really high grades to get in compared to a lot of places?

I'm not at Bristol Uni though, I'm at BIMM.


BIMM's still a good place though, mainly good teachers from all walks of life in the industry.

I'm currently on an IT internship with a top 10 bank, and when I go home, I have a year left to finish my degree. No plans to do a masters at the moment, at least not a full-time one.

I chose dropped out but I didn't, I just did a one year course and then didn't pursue anything further
But boys will be boys and girls have those eyes

To the people who graduated, what was it like finding a job? Was it soon after or did it take a while? In your chosen field or not?

Graduated with a BA (Hons) in Music last summer, as of yet it hasn't done anything for my job prospects even remotely.

I put not planning on going, though I would love to, things don't always work out the way you want them too.

I had just finished all my classes and thesis on university!! It took me 7 years to finish a 5 years degree on Business & Economics.

Now I'm studying for the Degree exam that would take place on mid august. It's a lot to study, so I decided to take out the strings to my guitars (lol).

Looking forward to find a job pretty soon and buy an Orange Rockerverb 50 with my first salary (rough market estimate of 2.000 USD )
Since 2002 using UG. This page teached me how to play guitar and help'd me to embrace the passion of my life: Music.

Starting a 4 year course at Newcastle University in September (provided I get the grades)

If not then I'll be at the University of Sheffield for 4 years, which is also fine by me
'And after a while, you can work on points for style.
Like the club tie, and the firm handshake,
A certain look in the eye and an easy smile.'

'You have to be trusted by the people that you lie to,
So that when they turn their backs on you,
You'll get the chance to put the knife in.'
