School of Computing and Information Technology

From part-time courses such as an Introduction to Computing and IT level to full–time courses such as HND in Computing, the School of Computing and IT has the course to suit your needs.

Part-time Courses

Across four campuses the School of Computing and IT delivers part-time courses in a range of subjects from purely recreational, such as how to become familiar with using a digital camera and processing and manipulating the image (Adobe Photoshop), to courses with more of an industrial bias such as the HNC in Computing and Systems Development.

Also on offer are courses, such as the European Computer Driving Licence (ECDL) that allow the learner to achieve an internationally recognised qualification gaining valuable expertise in word-processing, databases, spreadsheets, DTP, presentation graphics and use of the Internet. As well as a taught course, the ECDL can also be undertaken on a distance learning basis.

These courses can be delivered in the daytime or evenings.


Full-time Courses

Aimed at the student who wants to gain nationally recognised qualifications in Computing and IT. These courses are delivered over our four main campuses, Afan, Brecon, Neath & Newtown, with a range of entry levels from the BTEC Level 1 Diploma in IT, to the BSC (Hons) in Computing and Information Systems.

Our full-time Computing & IT courses also include the Level 2 Extended Diploma in Information & Creative Technology, the Level 3 Extended National Diploma in IT and A Level Computer Science. The majority of our Level 3 students progress to Higher Education gaining a degree or HND.


Up-to-date hardware and software are used in the School with all PCs having Internet access in a state-of-the-art Electronic Learning Centre. Software such as the Adobe suite are used extensively. PC construction and network development are carried out in bespoke laboratories.
