Any filmmakers out there? What are your views on film degrees?
I'm starting uni this September to do a film &video degree but I've been told by people working in the industry that degrees are useless and you're better off getting running jobs on films sets and working your way up from there? What are you thoughts and opinions on this. I would someday like to direct my own film.

It depends what you want to do. If you want to direct or produce than, as the other answer suggests, just take the money you would have spent and then make your own movie. Write a script, hire people, and shoot it... More

Honestly, don't do it. Take that money, buy a camera, post ads on craiglist looking for talent and make a movie yourself. The cream rises to the top, and if you're talented, somebody is bound to notice, whether you live in Kansas, L.A....Whether you have a Degree or not. Cheers and best of luck!
