Testimonials

Edgar Antonio Baessa Moreira

Computer Networks and Security | 2020

"I enjoy technologies especially computing as it gives me a view of how the world needs to be connected to allow people to network with each other. Students need good support in order to learn and the University lecturers are so friendly and make every effort to help students. "

Tom Plumpton

Computing | 2018

"Software engineering provided the relevant exposure to current software development technologies and practices that were invaluable for both interviews, and starting a graduate job.

Lecturers have contacts with lots of local businesses and actively seek work placement opportunities for students over summer or part-time during their course. This provided both useful experience in the field and sometimes income."
