Your Questions Answered

Can any organisation avail of this?

Yes once you have people who meet the academic entry criteria for these courses you can put multiple members of your organisation on any of these courses under the scheme for free.

What kind of person would these courses be relevant to?

These are degree level ICT courses so they will appeal to people from other backgrounds who want to train in IT. Perhaps you have people in finance, operations, engineering or other areas who want to upskill in ICT or people already working in IT who want an accredited qualification in these new important areas of IT. The normal entry criteria is a level 8 degree in any discipline with non-standard applications also considered based on experience.

These are Higher Diploma programmes and so require a good deal of commitment from the student. Courses normally run 2 evenings a week plus Saturdays with 3 12-week semesters spread over a full calendar year.
