She wants to do a degree course at Falmouth.

Great university. I went to Camborne School if Mines there and the art/photography was great to see on campus at the same time.

Ironically, our lecturer told one chap who had a WH Smith cheapo scientific calculator to "get a proper one like a Casio" (!) because the chap couldn't follow the steps on the cheap one.

My friends' son completed a degree course in photography at Glasgow University and it was all based around film. He is now running the catering department in a pub in Norwich!

Yeah, a degree doesn't always translate into a career but at least she is following her dream and you never know what the future holds.

Good choice and a lovely location.

Our son is starting a photography degree course at Sunderland next week, having decided against completing his music degree at Manchester.

Film, photographic paper and wet processing are essential elements of the course. I am also looking forward to him trying out the Mamiya 711 and RB67 for projects.

As you say John, a degree doesn't guarantee a job in any chosen field, but it does open up a whole new raft of opportunities, which (rightly or wrongly) are simply not available to non-graduates. However, it all depends on the individual, their creative abilities and the genre of photography that they specialise in.

Sadly though, like many other professions, photographers have to compete with those who believe they can do an equal job with a 40 MP phone camera - which must be good because it has forty million pixels!
