Good call, now that you mention it my daughter's recent photography lecturer was incredulous when she mentioned her dad had and used a film camera (boy did I get in trouble. Apparrantly I had deliberatly set her up to be embarassed...!). You may find yourself at a seriuos disadvantage by following advice from here. Her university used (and supplied) entry level canon eos consumer kit's with the 2 kit lenses flash & tripod. Perhaps you should ask your course convenor for advice, you may not need to purchase a camera to begin with.
