Student Case Study

“Unlike traditional Universities, there was much more flexibility with the pace of learning which provided me with a more accessible means of study and encouraged me to participate fully. By completing the HNC and HND first, it gave me the opportunity to work on any skill gaps that I may have had from High School. The course content reflects the most up to date technologies such as working with the cloud and artificial intelligence. The transition to a workplace was made much easier because of the development skills that were taught to us alongside the technical elements of the course.”
