There are many reasons for recommending postgraduate study at ICIT, but the quality of the teaching, the breadth of the course and its location in a “world capital” of renewable energy, stand out as key differentiators.

The coursework comes thick and fast, combining individual assignments with group-based projects. Interspersing these are numerous field trips and guest presentations from people working in the industry, many of whom are ICIT alumni. All of these teaching modes were “big learns” at the time, but it is only now, with the benefit of hindsight, that I fully appreciate how well the course prepared me for entering the industry.

If you are thinking of bringing family, you need have no fears about them settling in here. The locals are welcoming and it's an incredibly child-friendly, family orientated place. As long as you secure accommodation with central heating and double glazing, they'll have a great time here too!
