Computing & Information Technology courses

Computing plays an ever-more important role in every aspect of our lives and businesses are always looking for professionals who have the skills and drive to succeed in this fast-paced and ever-evolving industry. Our courses have been designed to combat the shortage of highly skilled graduates in the computing industry, which means excellent employment prospects.

You can choose one of our specialist computing courses or opt for a course with a wider focus, giving you plenty of flexibility when it comes to which direction you want your career to take.

Once you graduate you’ll be able to apply for jobs in fields such as computer programming, network design, web development, data analysis, web development, forensic or cyber security.

As the computing sector is constantly evolving, so too are our courses to ensure you’re well-prepared for the world of work when you graduate. We regularly consult with industry experts to make sure that what we’re teaching you is relevant and meets best practice standards.
