“The Higher Diploma in Science in Computing is an excellent industry supported course which has helped me to develop a wide range of highly desirable IT skills. While the workload on the course is highly intensive the opportunities and skills gained from its completion are highly recommended and offer the student the maximum possibility of employment on its completion.
