That time of year again

Time for third-level institutes to pedal their wares, polluting the airwaves with their ads to lure the thousands of wide-eyed Leaving Cert students still trying to decide what they want to be when they grow up. Or as it should really be advertised, what you want to do for the next 3-4 years.

I'm a graduate of DCU's B.Sc. Multimedia, a science degree from the School of Communications in the Faculty of Humanities. A contradiction? I would rather say diversity. The course has changed somewhat since I left it in 2006, now only 3 years in length and the mandatory semester of work placement removed. DCU have launched a new site to introduce themselves to prospective students, DCU World. I'm delighted to see that the multimedia guys have finally put a showcase of some of the work online too, showing the many different paths this course can take you down. I can't recommend it highly enough and often wish I could do it all over again. Take a look and see if it tickles your fancy. Feel free to get in touch if you think it might be for you!

Im not sure whether to do communications or multimedia. I'm about to drop to ordinary maths.I like working on computers and my plan is to be a filmmaker or work in the games industry. Any help would be appreciated.thanks
