I am currently employed as a software developer.
I have been at uni for the last few years part time, studying computer science, in my old job (also software developer, but for a smaller agency) they were happy to let me duck out for quiz's and required tutorials, so uni was not much of a burden.
I was/am at uni because I wanted the degree to help in finding a better job as I got older and my career progressed.
My current position is mid level, the listing was for someone who both had a degree and at least 3 years industry experience, however I got the position anyway (although they did really make me prove myself)
I am considering dropping uni, mostly because I don't see the need so much right now, I am already well on my way in my career, I have the experience (and will have the experience required) for more senior roles in the future.
My fear is that I will drop uni, progress through the company I am at now but if I ever were to leave for another mid level - senior role I would not be considered because I wouldn't have a degree. Is this the reality? Or would my experience be enough to get in the door? I am confident in my skillset, however I don't want to be looked over due to company policy of requiring a degree.
