    Steve, they both lead to the same thing, buh one is more academic that the other. The vocational one won't need a post-grad degree tho.

    Ahmed, its a course that trains u for a specific job...

    Sayf, not for investment banking.. they're more into reputation n stuff

    =======
    anywayz, i've declined the offer.... Cass is good, buh i can do a post-grad at a betta skl.. hmm maybe Sad business skl *dreams*

    plus the offer was stuupid... they basically said one of my subjects wasn't worth nought, so they gave me a crazy high offer.... sheesh :S

    i have always liked the idea of a vocation but i haven't done one.

    they are more likely to lead to work immediately aren't they?

    yes, coz they need less training time so companies spend less money on their training.. hence why they get employed easily..
