Distance learning has been a great experience for me. I am somewhat of a mature student at 51 and have been able to fit the course work around a full time job. It is not always easy as there are always conflicts with this type of learning but the staff at ICIT is very accommodating and gives a high level of access to the students which really helps.
Although still working on my final dissertation I have managed to get a job in the industry due to the work on the course and have used the materials within the course on a number of occasions so far which shows it is relevant and up to date. I have a slight advantage living in Orkney but I am sure the experience would be as valuable to anybody who wants to study and still has to work.
