In Germany it definitely makes a difference what you studied and what your general national vocational qualification is. They are kind of an entry but at the same time you have to show you got working experience or some skills at the same time. That is why this generation is called the generation of internship as we have to do internships or working student jobs in the area we major in while we go to uni.
 
It is true that the field of computer science is more relaxed even in Germany, though, if you got a great portfolio and skills without a degree, meaning you can work there without having gone to uni or gotten a vocational training in it, but overall in my country without a degree or vocational training there is rarely a way to get a job you can live off, as you lack the qualification (graduation in this case) to entry the working world. Career is another matter (it's your portfolio and skills that count to get far...or a lot of apple polishing in certain old-fashioned jobs... >.>), but Germany is still very old-fashioned in general regarding prestigious fields/occupations.
 
Anyway, due to the lack of computer scientists in my country, a degree in that field really means getting a well paid job (in Germany at least). That is part of why I decided to do it and personal interest in it of course. :mimihat:
I will definitely do my best to learn as much as I can while I am there!  :seraismile:

I found all my old save RPG Maker resources and tutorials. I zipped em and uploaded em to mediafire. There should be quite a lot of mapping tutorials in there :)

Definitely a great experience, and looks good on your application/resume.

Also, on my mind, has anyone watched Monkey King, Hero Is Back? It's an animated movie made in China, and it doesn't suck AT ALL. It's movie and I do recommend checking it out when ya'll able!

Going to uni and getting a good job aren't particularly related (at least in the computer field). A lot of career paths focus more on demo reels/portfolios than degrees these days. But learn as much as you can while you're there! Universities are a great resource for learning.

Hey, legacy! Long time no see! :seraismile:
 
Yep, I am semi-forward looking to it. If it gets too difficult I just might have to change to an easier uni (and course). :seraisweat: No time to study a thousand years like others do! Don't get me wrong if I was rich I would propably study just for fun and not care about the length and course as much but as a poor gal I need a job that has a future. :needshat!:

Omg mela is back! Ohaio, mela-chan!

And yeah, you eventually have to learn all the maths for computer science. It's awful. Gotta learn about surface normals and tangents of cosigns or whatever :P

Debates/Serious Discussions / Re: No Vote = No Right to Complain?

Of course you still have the right to complain especially if you do not have any decent options and voting would not change anything. A few years ago my country's Federal Court of Justice decided that politicians are not obligated to keep their promises meaning they can lie through their teeth and then do as their please, so how would voting make sense in this case when you know basically any canidate can spread false promises without any consequences?

Uni. It starts in October and I am so nervous. I have been living in a small town for so long and just got my Abitur (German high school diploma) at an evening school which had a very small class and now I will soon be at this huge university with thousands of probably much younger students. Furthermore, I kind of worry that I am merely too dumb to succeed in my major that covers lots of IT which is actually just maths in disguise. :o
