the world is your oyster with IT SKILLS

Information technology (IT) and Computing are all-important in today’s world and will lead to a successful career since the skills of a specialist are much in demand. The degree course offered combines an understanding of IT and Computing and so will embrace an understanding of hardware, software, cloud computing, cybersecurity and storage but also end-products such as video games and websites. It will put graduates in a position where they can gain employment in a small or large business or start their own business.

Truth University’s degree is unique in three respects. Firstly, all learning is through a mixture of theory and practical application, with assignments rooted in these two skills. Moreover, students will have the one-to-one support of a supervisor at all times, particularly when they are working on their assignment, and so will never feel that they are working in isolation even though the degree is taken at a distance.

Finally, there is a balance between east and west with many of the academics based in developing countries and so in sympathy with the students’ cutural backgrounds. At the same time, some of the academics are based in the west so the course represents a balance of east and west.
