  1. Course Flexibility

 All of us have a variety of responsibilities to juggle in our daily lives. It isn’t always easy to weave the extra commitment of education into the already crowded mix of family, work, and social engagements.

  1. Career Prospects – The future’s so bright…

We live in a fast-changing world. And although it is impossible to accurately predict the future face of the world of work, one thing is for sure; IT is going to play a HUGE role in it.

Possessing highly valued skills and qualifications in IT will help ensure your success in this rapidly growing industry. Whether you want to work as a network engineer, a software developer, or a security administrator, the future looks very bright indeed!

  1. Flexible Working Style

Not only has technology dramatically changed the nature of the work we do, but it has changed the style in which we do it.

Working in IT very often offers opportunities for working in a non-traditional manner. You may find yourself availing of the opportunity to work in an office where collaboration, open-office concepts and ping-pong tables are the norm. If working from home appeals to you, the IT field provides lots of opportunities for that. Or you may get your degree in a different country and decide to stay, live and work there.

Gone are the days when being tied to a desk from 9 to 5 was the only option. And this is particularly true for those working in IT. There’s no end to the different options that fit your life-style.
