HND in Computing Science
I wanted to improve my career prospects and chose this course as it covered the areas that I was interested in. The learning is hands-on at Shrewsbury Colleges Group and the smaller classes mean more interaction with tutors. I wanted to learn design and how to build databases, and I am getting all of that here. The information on web design is first class and you are taught by experts. You are educated in every aspect of system development – hardware and software.
HND in Computing Science
Previous Institution: Ercall Wood School
I completed a Level 3 in Computing & IT at SCG and enjoyed my time so much on the course that I knew I had to apply for the HND. I wanted to improve my networking knowledge so that I could pursue it as a career. Studying a HE course in Shrewsbury was so appealing to me – a local institution with friendly teachers and more one on one interaction. After this year I will top up my degree at Staffordshire University.
HNC in Business
The HNC has provided me with a thorough understanding of business fundamentals, which I have been able to translate into my working life as a Marketing Executive. Having started in this career less than two years ago as an entry level Communications Coordinator, I have already received a promotion and have undertaken increased levels of responsibility.
