"This course offered me the opportunity to study at university while allowing me to support my family commitments. The course subjects offered me exactly what I needed to study for my career path and although the work is challenging it is very enjoyable and I am glad I made this choice. The support here is great, we never feel we have no-one to ask the questions we need answering."
- Will Logan, FdSc Applied Computing [former title of the FdSc Computer Technologies (Software Development)]
