It has to end sometime—now is the time to really LIVE.

I know I should be happy, and a part of me is, but I'm also feeling daunted / unnerved by the whole experience. You never realise how much of your life is centred around university until it ends...


The good thing about Uni is that it never truly ends. You can keep going back for more, if you choose.

For sure it's daunting, but focus on your pride and accomplishment rather than your next steps.
It takes a while to stop thinking of oneself as a student, if that's been your identity since childhood.

That’s true. There IS Grad School, of course.

I was actually speaking of the Undergrad experience.

She can earn other undergrad degrees as well - and also enrol for continuing education programs, audits, etc.

The opportunities are endless! It's always fun to avoid the working world as long as possible. :P

If only that was true, the level of debt you undergo makes that option a huge risk financially

I received one of my provisional (subject to change depending on external examiner feedback) grades today. This is for motion graphics. Essentially a B- mark. A little disappointing but still a passing grade. I think that with the grades I have now, I'm probably looking at a 2:1 overall for my course. Which isn't a bad grade to graduate with, I won't know for absolute sure what mark I have gained overall until I receive the final grade.

Nope....not bad at all!

Do you feel you will go on to get your Master's?

I would start sending CV's out as quickly as possible.

True, but grad students can often earn grants, scholarships, and bursaries, and also be paid to TA.

I might go back in the future to get a Master's, but at the moment I'm just working independently on my portfolio and trying to find a job. Oh, and I'll be taking up driving lessons in the near future.

If you can drive in Central London, you can drive most anywhere.

I’d have to drive about a week to get used to driving in the UK.
