What the students say

I think it is a good course as u can get into any type of job really with it... it gives u a good choice for the future rather than going for lets say nursing and then all ur future career can be is nursing, not that theres anything wrong with it, at least with business u could become manager of a company, or head of marketing, or a secetary of an office or even a business teacher. It gives u a broad choice of career.

It was the right choice because it is exactly what it says on the tin, Software Development and Computer Networking. I'm at the end of my first year and have learned a lot involved with Programming, such as assessing a problem, constructing an algorithm or solution and then coding the solution. I have learned alot about Computer Networking and have to knowledge and practical skills to set up a small LAN. I never thought (or was never told) that I would accomplish so much in my first year alone. This course is very rewarding when the effort is put in and this makes the projects worthwhile and even fun! I would say that my interest in this field really carried me through, this course can be very hands-on and practical and has a good mixture of team work and solo work and I think that a strong interest would be needed to persist in this course.

It was the right choice for me for 2 specific reasons. Firstly, the content of the course and the material covered was both relevant and interesting to me developing as a player/athlete in a sport I love playing both inside and outside the college. Secondly, the structure of the exams and the semesterisation process was favourable for me in that it supported continuous assessment and there was rewards for being in class regularly, as opposed to cramming for an end of year exam.
