At the moment I would say either a IT consultant or a Systems Anaylst if i decide to get a job after my degree. If I like my research project and doing research, then I would like to do a Phd and work as a University lecturer/researcher.

Computer Scientist at NASA thankyouverymuch, after taking a course of Robotics and Cybertronics at Heriot Watt. I'll spend about a year or two there, then find my life seriously lacking something. I'll quit my job, move to either Iceland or Japan, and become a full-time artist. After about a year of that, I'll find money is an issue, and so return to NASA, working from home (Iceland/Japan) would be good to balance that, but I doubt that's going to happen. I don't yet have a realistic view on money, thus I'm going to say I'll have a nice house with the garden I've already dreamt up, and at weekends I'll sit under a big willow tree and watch the sun rise/set while writing and drawing, and Monday-Friday it's computer-dom and robots. Then of course, I'll wake up.

I think it's all to do with statistics and you calculate the risk of stuff, but I am not exactly certain if this is right.

I want to, and WILL eventually work in the BBC. I will write stuff, hopefully with a friend I have yet to meet. I will then personally go through the whole process of turning into something tv-ise-able. That includes doing support stuff, acting, putting it together & editing, and pretty much everything. Which is where my chosen course at the RSAMD comes in. It does everything that supports the actors in a play, except music. Thus allowing me to understand when I'm writing, and do when it's happening all this support stuff.

Exciting. Makes me wanna jump out my bed in the morning to go to work!

If you need a director, give a shout! (I'd quite fancy being a director.)
