HND in Computing and Systems Development
The Higher National Diploma Programme is a 2 year training programme aimed at students who would like to further their studies in IT/ Media sector. This Diploma programme is based on continuous assessment by assignment (home and class) rather than by exams. The HND programme is awarded by BTEC Edexcel and is recognised by the MQRIC at level 5 on the Malta Qualifications Framework. Edexcel is the largest awarding body in the UK and is present in 112 countries whereby 4 million people graduate through one of its programme annually. This means that the BTEC HND is recognised worldwide as a qualification. Further to this the BTEC HND is equivalent to the first two years of the University Degree programme and is a direct entry requirement for the Top- Up B.Sc (Hons.) Degree programme (1 year) at the University of Hertfordshire which Computer Domain represents here in Malta. Students will therefore obtain a fully-recognised IT degree with Honours within a three-year period.
