100% success for computer course

Computer users among staff and students are being offered the chance to receive nationally-recognised IT qualifications through a scheme co-ordinated by the University Computing Service.

The computer literacy and information technology qualification is nationally recognised and is offered by the majority of UK higher education institutions. Candidates sit a set of basic assessments in the use of word processing, spreadsheets, databases and desktop publishing packages.

The University has enjoyed a 100% pass rate since the scheme was launched, and the successful students were awarded their certificates at a ceremony on October 14.

The qualifications are available to any member of staff or postgraduate student. For further details contact Kiran Mistry on ext 5689.
