Celebrating VQ Day 2019

This week we're celebrating the achievements of students studying Vocational Qualifications at UCM. 

Robbie studied the Extended Diploma in IT (Level 3 BTEC)

Grade achieved: Triple Distinction Star


I always had a fascination with IT and knew I wanted to study IT at a high level.

The best thing about this course is that it covers a wide range of IT skills and systems, including databases, hardware and software. Over two years I studied 18 units.

I personally find coursework less stressful than exams, so this course suited me particularly well.

“I couldn’t have successfully completed this course without the support from tutors at the College and staff at Student Services.”

The next step for me is studying a degree in Computer Science at UCM. Once I have successfully completed this I’d like to work in network or data centres.
