2. Who this course is for

Recent years have witnessed the emergence of a technical skills gap in the IT industry, caused by the marked lack of appropriate higher level qualifications. The BSc (Hons) and Foundation Degree programmes in Network Engineering (Systems Administration) aim to redress the balance. They provide students with a trusted route through to their chosen career and employers with the technical experts needed to positively impact their business. A winning combination of technical and transferable skills equips graduates to take up positions as technicians, senior administrators or managers within the IT and related industries. The CISCO-specific content of the course enhances graduates' employability further.

7. How you'll be assessed

Most courses are assessed via a combination of coursework, exams and practical assessments. Exams are formal, timed written assessments, carried out in a controlled environment and overseen by one or more invigilators. Coursework differs from exams in that it is usually non-timed and carried out independently. Practical assessments involve observation of your practical skills and competencies by a trained assessor.
