Okay, so i'm 15 and I need to decide what college courses I am going to take next year. I have decided on maths, computing, and then either IT, physics or graphic design as a third option. I am really interested in development and also in information architecture. I would like to know whether I need to get a degree in university to become either a professional developer or information architect, or whether I can just get my A levels and get a job. Also, is freelancing as a developer or information architect a good job where you just get hired by a company to do work for them for the amount of time needed, and then move on. Thanks.

Education is the key to success! Going to college/university opens more doors for future employment. It also puts you ahead of the competition, meaning people going after the same job opening as you.

A degree equals to better jobs and higher salaries. So a better life.
