Student story

BSc Computing

"Worked as a chef for 15 years, it was a tough decision to change my career but my hobby of fixing computers both pc and Laptops led me to enrol in NC computing hoping to pursue a career in the same."

Being an older student, I would advise anyone studying the course, to focus on what you are learning in the college, but along with that try to do a summer placement or internship that you are able to do, as that will help you in finding a job once you graduate.

I currently work with NHS Western Isles, as a health intelligence analyst, which involves the use of Relational databases and SQL, which was taught during my studies in UHI.
