I expect so, yeah. Depends on your grades I expect :D 4 year Bachelors courses include a year in industry which can be interesting, and also give you some money to splurge in your final year :)
They call that a "4 year sandwich". I'd be going straight for the 4th masters year.

I'm thinking about a 4 year Masters sandwich; thats 5 years total... But at a uni with close links to Jag/LR :p

Also; often you can transfer to the Masters course after the first or second year. Check that out; the first year for me is completely general to bring everyone to the same standard. Only afterwards do you specialise, so I could change from either Mechanical, Civil or Electronic if I wish. Mech all the way thought :p Congrats, too!

As for me: I just got a message on my flickr from someone who wants to use my picture of a telescope in one of her talks. I googled who she was and it turns out it someone who works at NASA's Goddard Space Flight Center.
:woot:

The few more days turned into weeks, go German Bureaucracy?!

Is there any area of mathematics that you enjoyed more than others-topology, differential equations, algebras, differential geometry, graph theory, analysis (including complex analysis), applied mathematics, and so forth? On a personal level, partial differential equations, group theory, and some differential geometry (I'm still beating my head over lie groups on differentiable manifolds) are my favorites. Their immensely helpful in cutting down calculation time in research.

Kudos to you. I don't think I could ever do pure math. That takes an entirely different mindset altogether.

I handed in the final assignment of my journalism degree today which means that university is officially finished. What grade I get is another matter, realistically a 1st is out of reach but I'll have to have done catastrophically bad in the last few assignments to get less than a 2:2 so hopefully I'll be OK.




Not really sure what to do now though. Time to go out into the big bad world...:cry:

I should have posted this last week, but I got the position I've been hoping for. It only took about 4 months, but I am the latest hire at one of the most prestigious counseling centers in the city.

Their recidivism rate is about 6% (most places are between 40% and 60%) and their treatment model is the subject of two research papers and a book.
