today we had a look at the requirements and availability of jobs in our field of study, we gained valuable insight into the kind of salaries we could receive as well as what would be expected of us if we were to apply. it was also interesting to know that the skills we develop during our education don’t necessarily have to SOLEY apply to a job in game/web design.
this then led to looking into housing prices ranging from our local towns, to areas popular to people in our area of study (interactive design/media) such as london and plymouth. the prices are drastically different, london can range from £500 pcm all the way app to £20k ppm where as plymouth started at around the £250 pcm mark. this in coalition with your earnings, is important to take into consideration when budgeting money.
