    Further Education Advice?

    I about to finish my HND (Higher National Diploma) I did this only because I am really unsure on which industry of IT I want to go into and it covers basically everything...I now have to make the choice of what course in University I want to do and I'm leaving it really late to be honest.

    There are 3 courses I have in mind which are:

    Computer Science
    Software Engineering
    Ethical hacking (seems exciting but?...could be a waste of 3,000)

    My biggest issue is my long term Girlfriend is a teacher and is in full time work and we have been talking about moving out etc but obviously I couldn't do that if I wanted to go on to University so I kind of feel it will old my relationship back and also University in England/Scotland is cheaper and easier to get into than Northern Ireland so the possibility would be there for me to study...

    Another issue is the job market, at the moment there are jobs I could get now for 25 - 27k a year with a company car but after that there isn't anymore jobs until an Honours Degree so I'm worried about paying for education and then I'm working in a job below my paid grade.

    What should I do?

    Software Engineers are in the biggest demand and pay the highest salaries.

    Do what Snuke said. Hopefully you land in a huge firm and money will be raining down on you.
