Regular readers / reader / my psychiatrist will know that I went to TASC in 1986 to get my degree, which three years later I failed to do. And I failed the re-sit, too. And that I’m now back at TASC on the PG Dip in Public Communications.
Well, I’ve passed!
Quite why it was taking so long to mark the final module (which I studied in April and handed in in May) I know not, but I don’t care, I’ve passed a course at TASC!
So the the BA from Leeds Polytechnic and the MA from Leeds University, I now fill the gap with a PG Dip from Leeds’s wannabe third University (and I’ll rue the day that that happens, frankly). A double hat-trick, of awards and institutions.
Next stop? Well, I would’t mind starting an MPhil, though I am notoriously bad at research and the like. I could do a taught MPhil in one year at Birmingham, but that would mean moving to Birmingham. And I’d like to do something that brings together my two interests, communications and Europe. I could do a TASC / Leeds Uni joint MPhil in these areas… one day. For the moment, I’m treating myself to a Wii and a bit of sensless game-play!
