Hi there

I am busy working for a communications company in South Africa. Busy getting some good experience and my goal is that in about two or three years time that I want to work for a communications company in the UK.

I never finished my BSc and I am contemplating completing it in my spare time in the next two years.

I would like to know how important me having a degree will be on getting a java job there.

Kind regards,
Rachel

A degree would be good.

Very good experience using Java would be rated better but normally you only get that working with people who have good degrees. Catch 22. If you get a chance to do a degree, take it. This puts you on a level of being able to interact with other degree holders.
