    Friggen schools!

    So the other day I got a letter from my school that told me all the starting times, my teacher, when i would get my ID card and all that fancy school starting stuff. This was all fine and dandy because i am just about ready to get back to school and learn some stuff. I just quite my job in antisipation of this and got all my books and was ready to go, then on Friday i got a call from the school and they said "your course has been canceled due to the fact there is no teacher, and there are not enough students" I was a little stunned to say the least. I asked what my options were and all i can do is wait till next year, or get my money back.

    Now the real problem with this is the fact that I have already got a working visa, and a ticket to go to Australia for a year, and i was to do this right after my course ended in march. Now i am in a real pickle, no job, no school, and a ticket that is no good for 4 months, it just drives me bonkers! the worst part is the fact that this school has screwed me around now for 2 years!

    I just don't know what to do at all. Any suggestions?

    The only other place within a reasonable distance that offers the same course is a three hour drive away, and i have checked and the course is full there.

    Photography citificate would be nice, but the resulting job for a person of my experience would be somewhat less than an apprentice wage ;)

    OH Noooo!!!!

    That really sucks! I had some friends here and exactly the same thing happened to them. They shut down a whole department at my uni coz there just weren't enough students. :-( sucks ey!
    So they all had to move to the next city. :-(

    That may be the best thing for you to do. Move somewhere you can do the course. Or just work until you go over seas.
