“I would definitely recommend NESCol to everyone who wants to study computing. No matter what age, or if this is their first course, or – if like me – you want to change your career. It’s a very friendly environment, well quipped when it comes to computing facilities and – most importantly – with very, very supportive and highly knowledgeable lecturers.”
“I enjoy Computing because it’s such a broad field. There’s a variety of skills to learn and you can easily develop a niche. No two projects will be the same and since it’s such a fast-paced field, there are always new developments to keep abreast of.
“The computing courses give you lots of practical skills and a strong foundation to expand upon.”
“By sharing my experience I hope I can inspire anyone with autism.”
“I would say to anyone thinking of returning to learning after time away – just do it.”
“I I started with the intro course, am close to completing my Level 5 and next year I will be studying for my HNC – I’m so pleased with how far I have come.”
“College was great. I really enjoyed meeting new people interested in the same subject as me. The course really gave you free rein to explore your interest in different directions so you can get a feel for what you like.”
“Just because you are a girl, it will not stop you from succeeding or being accepted in computing. The college is very inclusive and really encourages girls and everyone to pursue a career in computing as long as they have a genuine interest in it.”
