Just the Bachelor's degree right now but I REALLY want to go for my Masters.  I should do it, since work will reimburse me.  It's coming up with the upfront money that is difficult.  I think the Masters would be good for me.  At one time I wanted to go for a PhD.  Maybe....

B in BA, MsC in Business Economics. Dutch swimming diploma's A,B and C, Certified (but also expired) Ski Instructor, etc
 
I always wanted to have PhD too - and was always intrgued by the Classifieds in the Economist where you can earn a PhD for your life experience from such prestiguous (yet non-accredited) Universities -that are always housed i n just 1 office suite  Grin
 
 like
 
Century University - 2201 San Pedro NE
Building 1, Suite 230 Albuquerque, NM 87110 http://www.centuryuniversity.edu/
 
The sadly closed Pacific Western University on Hawaii
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pacific_Western_University_(Hawaii)
 
etc
 
you can find the 'right' school through this handy tool at http://www.universaldegrees.com and PhD are fromUSD 649 onwards which is a steal of course hehe

Maybe we should have a 'Who has the most unusual qualification on PTF?' thread...  
 
Apart from being one of the first electronic notetakers for deaf people in the UK to gain the new level 3 qualification in the field, I've also got GCSE Ukrainian - grade A  Cool

I have finished elementary school, I have Dutch swimming diploma A and am currently in my final year of high school after which I will try to earn a bachelor's degree and maybe a master's.  
 
I never managed to get the shoelace tying diploma or the biking diploma, though.  undecided
 
edit:
I also have an FCE and CAE certificate. My Engrish speaking abilities suck, though. Tongue I got so nervous during the exams that I spoke with how I imagined Sean Connery would do a Dutch accent. That didn't do me well.
According to my teacher they also didn't like that I used the Dutch names of Dutch and Belgian cities and pronounced them as a Dutch speaking person would. Which is just rediculous. I don't call Liverpool "Leverplas" either. [/rant]
I used to have a near native LA accent, but that has vanished over time.

I did not see at least by US standards either some college  or Trade or Tech School  so I wii say that I completed High school ( 12th grade) .I had one year of college  (Computer Science) and I went to 2 Tech schools one for Computer programming and operations way back in the 1977 and one for Digital Technology back in 1985.
 
I also took a college course in starting my own business back in 1995 Cool

I'm on my second year of gymnasium.
Not quite sure what I'll do when I finish. Gymnasium will surely open up alot of other possibilities, but I'd love to work with something concerning art and media. Photographer, designer, something alike.

I'm still in high school, but next year I will start at Tampere University of Technology. Unless I completely fail my final exams, I'm quite sure that I will be accepted.
Materials technology interests me and it has a good employment rate. It combines physics and chemistry, which both are my favourite subjects. Sounds like a perfect career choice for me!
Many people are surprised when I tell them that I want to become a graduate engineer. Is it really that rare for a girl to like science and technology? Luckily my boyfriend isn't the jealous type because my future school mates are mostly men.  Grin

You could say so  Cheesy I just started studying automation and system technology in Helsinki University of Technology and I was baffled to notice that only 2 out of 60 of the new students were girls. So my girlfriend can be at peace  Tongue But next year I'm going to change to bioinformation technology, I'm more interested in biology and chemistry than physics.

No, it's not that uncommmon.
 
I have MSc Biotechnology from UCL and the gender split was about 50/50.
 
Currently doing PGCE where we are about 80% female though  Grin

I've noticed that there are much more girls on technology studies that include chemistry or/and biology. Physics and mathematics are clearly more favored by boys. At least that's what I've noticed here in Finland.
