Soo it's been ages since I last posted anything on here and I have now decided that I need a fresh start. After spending nearly £12,000 already on my degree I have decided that I have had enough and the time has come for me to go home... This comes after I had a horrible module and me realizing that in the amount of time I had spent at University I hadn't learn one damn thing! I expected the course to at least show you the ins and outs of the camera, all they taught us was the basics of aperture and shutter speed. Along with this we were taught how to use the darkrooms and a number of techniques - all of which I learnt at College. They say our second year is supposed to be the year where we decide what we want to specify in and yet they are making us collaborate on our modules with outsiders. I know it must sound like I am winging but I am very annoyed.
This annoys me greatly, I chose this University above Bristol and Plymouth, where I know people who enjoy their courses and don't regret their decision. I just feel as though I have wasted the last year and a half completely! Even more so, the £12,000 I spent already could of been used on workshops where I can guarantee I would have learnt more in 2 days then I have the whole time at Uni. I was so passionate above photography before I started my course and now I am lacking any motivation to even pick up my camera outside of work.
At this moment in time all I can think of is going back home to Cheltenham, building on my portfolio, getting a job, and finding as much work experience as possible. After all, even our tutors told us that a degree isn't important when it comes to getting a job, it's our work experience.
If anybody has any advice I would greatly appreciate it! I know leaving University is a big step but I am more motivated to go home then I have been to do any work on the entirety of my course!
