Foundation Degree Completed

Foundation Degree Completed

After two-years of intense and dedicated study, I completed my Foundation Degree in Computing Technologies in May 2018, although I have only recently received my final grade. All the hard work has certainly paid dividends as I graduated with a Distinction and believe that I was the top student in the cohort!

Although I specialised in Software Development, the course covered the full-breadth of computing topics, including modules on Databases, Web Development, Networks, Systems Analysis, Computer Systems Architecture, Computers in Business, Designing for the User Experience and Software Development. The programming content covered several different paradigms and languages. I really believe that it has given me the specialist knowledge I need to make a success of my second career as a website and software developer.

The course was run by West Herts College in collaboration with the University of Hertfordshire. It was an absolutely amazing experience and I was able to work with some incredible teachers and students alike. The memories will stay with me forever.
