Depending what course it is, traditional universities do distance learning with very little need to ever be there in person. Worth looking at options and cost etc.

It's very proper I can assure you. As mentioned it is highly respected. Been often told this from employers I've worked for in the past as to what made me "stand out", and I myself look out for it when I recruit for my department.
I did a BSc in Technology and managed to condense the whole degree in 5 years whilst working a full time job. I know people who've done it in 4.
Quite tempted to do a MSc, but we'll see!
As Crackajack said a lot of traditional Universities offer distance learning now too.

What did you learn in "Technology" - sounds quite broad?
Edit: I'm interested in potentially doing a course on programming/ui/ux, hence my asking.

Got a mate doing computer science distance course from York Uni, whilst living in Portugal and working full time, says it’s hard but lots of support and great course material

Need a better emergency electric shower for when the main one is out of action if any boiler issues.
To fit this do I need
- electrician only
- plumber only

Had a right shocker with hermes recently when used them to post a camera worth £100 sold via a forum.
their shitty website wouldn't let me insure for £100 so it defaulted to £20. Sent it tracked and signed for delivery, recipient says they haven't received it despite the driver GPS showing it being delivered on the right street and it's been signed for by someone.
Either their useless delivery driver has posted it to a neighbour without leaving a note or I'm getting scammed. The recipient says they've spoken to most of their neighbours and "no-one has it".
I've raised it with hermes for them to investigate but is there anything else I should be doing? the recip. paid by PayPal goods so reckon im about to be stiffed for £80. Have had 'lost in transit' parcels but never something like this before

I doubt you will even get £20 as I think cameras might be in their long list of exclusions.
I sold some vintage binoculars for £150 and they went missing and I got fuck all back despite it being seemingly obvious the temp delivery driver nicked them.
Only use Hermes for oversize items of low value now. Lesson learnt.

Hermes are utter dogshit. Avoid at all costs. Never had a good experience with them.
Currently waiting on a package from Germany for well over a month now with no update for 20 days (deliveries via other couriers incl deutsch Post take c1 week).
Also came home once to find they had tossed someone else's delivery over my gate and down the stairs (I live in a basement flat) - the package was marked as fragile and it had been pissing it down with rain all day so the packaging was utterly fucked.
