“Our students can pursue a variety of roles, depending on the pathway that they take. We have had students take up position as software developers, software testers, web designers, database administrators, network managers etc. However, the industry is constantly changing and at present more students are considering careers in games development or cybersecurity.”

Andrew French

"I have been running my own business for over 8 years and studying the Interactive Media degree meant I could carry on working while studying. I knew that I wanted to be involved in the creative industries and the course assisted me in adapting to the real world, learning new skills and developing existing ones."

Megan, Computing and Digital Media

"After passing the school programme course and leaving school I applied to do NC Computing with Digital Media SCQF Level 6. The jump wasn’t as scary as I thought it would be, since I already had been to college it was easy to settle in. Even if you’re nervous and shy to try new things. It will be the best experience!”
