    ris, architect!

    yesterday i got confirmation of my Diploma in Architecture, with distinction.

    it also means i am fully qualified as an architect, and can take the charter with the RIBA. 10 years after starting my BSc i can finally say i have completed my studies, with my fourth degree.

    and to top it off the school of architecture are going to give me a prize, which is quality.

    beers all round this weekend

    i have no idea yet what the prize will be, probably some book tokens (that's what i got as a prize in 2002).

    book tokens mainly means more archi-bookpr0n, big monographs full of pretty pictures

    i must admit i am glad i am done with the studying, the last few months of work and uni have been a bit trying.

    i have a masters thesis to think about, but that can wait a few months, especially if the weather is nice!

    i've been with my current company for 2 1/2 years, and the course was remote-study, which means that i can stay in full time work while i do it.

    it is focused on professional practice issues, so being in an office is pretty much invaluable. balancing the uni work with office work wasn't always easy.

    Yeah your college is the equivalent to our university. We have high school and college as seperate entities. so

    11-16 high school (Compulsary)
    16-18 college (optional)
    18 - Whenever you finish University.(Optional)

    Nice, I didn't think the UK system was that similar to the one we have here.
    With some exceptions, the general system here is:

    13-17: High school (mostly required)
    17-20: Technical college or 17-19: Preuniversitary college (both optional)
    19 or 20 to whenever: University (optional)

    [edit: damn, where are my manners lol, Congrats ris! I'll take one for you ]
