It feels weird to think that I am old enough and able enough to have just written and submitted my dissertation…
Personally, I love projects and coursework more than exams and I really enjoyed developing a project from researching, to designing, to developing a solution for a real-life IT business problem. That’s not to say it was a breeze, it’s hard when there’s time and knowledge constraints, and you’re the only resource.
That’s why ensuring you get the right help and support matters, and why my tutor group wanted to do something special for our tutor. So we printed off t-shirts and surprised him by all turning up late, and revealing them.
Whether you’re about to submit or will do in the future, good luck, don’t be afraid to ask for help and make sure you pick a project you’ll enjoy developing 🙂
