Is there no-one from South Wales on the forums? Or am I the only one?

Well I don't think I'm too far, I'm in Exeter. Is Weston-Super-Mare near south wales? Because I can get there in about an hour.

If I'd have followed my career plan from school I would just be finishing that course at that Uni right now :rolleyes: .
Unfortunately I only managed to finish my college course before I got put off doing it.

I don't know the specific name of the place, I just know it was in Wales and had a motorsport course.
When I was looking there was only 2 Universities that did the course.
I got put off because the Nat dip Motor Vehicle engineering course I did was crap, and the tutors were advising us to find an alternative career as there was no money in it and it's a dying industry apparently.

there are 2 unis' in wales doing the course and a few in england. those guys were talking crap! new technology is being used now, so they need people who know how to use it. we're being trained to use top of the range stuff, similar to what racing teams are using now. i don't see the industry dying in the near future.

I think they were talking about the lower end of the Market, ie fitting jobs.
