Last year I completed what is called here Certificate 4 in Information Technology, at a local TAFE college. TAFE colleges are a step below universities and are not attached to universities. Having completed that, I have this year enrolled in Bachelor of Technology (Computer Studies) at Monash University in Clayton, Victoria. I've looked at the university's information, and this two-year degree will, if I pass (fingers crossed), let me walk straight into any specialist degree, anything at all like aerospace engineering, robotics, biomechanics, digital systems design, anything. So obviously I'm quite happy with this, especially since I'm now 28 and since leaving the Navy I have had only crappy jobs that went nowhere. Since there were 25,000 fewer university places this year, I was very lucky to get in. Well, that's it, I just thought I'd share my very good news.
