Next year I will be doing a final year project at Uni. I've already thought of one and was wondering what you guys think of it.
I want to create a University Information Search for prospective students who are trying to look for an affordable University to attend. It will depend on the student's family income and the grades they get. They enter in those two parameters (and some more) and it comes up with a list of suitable Unis based on their criteria.
This is not about the price of tution fee. It's mostly to do with the cost of living. Stuff like:
Rent (if living in a private flat). Student Accomadation. Cost of traveling to your home and back (for holidays). ...and some other stuff stuff I haven't thought about yet.
It'll mostly be GUI driven with some textual information. I'm also thinking of using it as a website interface.
What do you guys think? Can I program something like this Java?
If there's any holes you see in my idea please tell me.
