Student review
It was a great experience with lots of hands on experience. There was even Cisco industry certification as well as a lot of practical work. I got a lot out of the course including a start into my career. The only downside may have been how flexible the timetable was but I managed while working part time.

Student review
Some of the lecturers/teachers were really strong and helpful, others were slightly combative and not at all helpful. One of the problem teachers either left of moved in my last year so they may not be an issue anymore. While I feel the coarse was generally balanced with good variety of stuff, while I was there some of the material was outdated and required updating. While I was able to slot into employment quickly anyway, I was disappointed there was no support or pathway into employment, and furthermore that I was unable to get credit to move onto the bachelor because my grades were low
