Course summary

This HND in Computing builds on previous experience and develops students as professional, self-respecting individuals, able to meet both the demands of employers in the computing sector and adapt to a constantly changing world. The qualification aims to widen access to higher education and enhance the career prospects of those who undertake it. The course provides students with a thorough grounding in computing principles at Level 5 that leads on to a range of specialist progression pathways at Level 6, relating to individual professions within the computing sector.
