Entry Requirements:

Interview required

Ideally at least 5 GCSEs at grade C or above, of which two must be maths and English, although 4 will be considered if subjects are relevant. All applicants will be interviewed and will have an aptitude test and those offered a place will be required to undertake internal assessments during induction, to help determine appropriate course entry level on the computing pathway.

Assessment:

Each unit is assessed through a series of internally set assignments. Some units may also be assessed via examinations.

Progression from this course:

The level 3 extended diploma is equivalent to three A-levels, which therefore allows the candidate, on passing the course, to apply for university entrance. Most students go on to study either for a foundation degree in computing or to read for a BSc in computing.

Those students who decide not to continue their education will stand a very good chance of finding work in some aspect of computing/information technology.
