We can basically go straight from here to working straight away and hit the ground running.

We can basically go straight from here to working straight away and hit the ground running. The fact that we’ve had exposure to industry-standard tools, and we haven’t just had a quick look at them, but we’ve used them properly, puts us at an advantage to people from other universities.

Supportive and helpful

The facilities here have been fantastic. The library is open 24/7 and most of the computers in the library have the software that I need to do assignments. Mellor building (which is where all the Cisco equipment is kept) is also open 24/7 as well so you can come and do work whenever you feel like doing so. 

The staff are always willing to help, and they also have drop in slots where they are able to talk one-on-one with you in private. They have been very supportive and helpful. They have shown me where I’ve gone wrong, they’ll help me to rectify the mistake and I don’t make them again. Or if I do make them again, I can then rectify it without their help.
