What our students say...

Kevin

" I always just loved computers and wanted to know how they worked… wanted to know the ins and outs. I’m happy with the course, the quality of the lecturers and the teaching. I was expecting them to be less involved and maybe just read out stuff but they explain it well to you. I was out for about a month in hospital but I caught up fairly easy because a lot of material is online, I was even doing some in the hospital. There was plenty of support."
