Graduation Ceremony

I attended the University’s Graduation Ceremony at Ely Cathedral yesterday. If theres one thing that the UK loves, it’s a ceremony.

Me standing infront of the cathedralIt was very well organised and planned. Free parking wth a shuttle bus to the Cathedral, clear direction to registration, robing and photography. There were a lot of nervous graduates but there needn’t have been. Ushers sent each row of graduates up along the side, where out of sight lists were checked and someone straightened our robes.

I think there’s probably more value in these things for family than for the graduates themselves but I enjoyed the day.

Not sure where to go from here. I enjoy studying – masters seems logical but I don’t have the interest I once did in Computing. I’ve looked at the Open Masters but would need to focus on science and the choice seems a little narrow. I guess I’ll figure it out.

Graduation and the future

Booked a graduation ceremony at last. Trying to find a suitable location, that fits in around work and family is a bit of a Travelling Salesman Problem.

I’m still not sure where to go next.

My current contract employs me until the end of 2021. Looking at an MSc with the OU, the Information Security and Forensics specialism looks fascinating and will no doubt continue to be an important area of the industry. To complete the qualification by 2021, I would need to register on Digital Forensics (M812) to start in May.

That means I could have started an MSc before my BSc graduation ceremony!
