    Hi I am a collage student currently studying a Level 3 IT extended diploma.
    I have a predicted grade of D*D*D and am planning to go into Higher education next year.

    I am conflicted between doing a HND at collage and going to university to study computer science.

    I would like to know whether a HND would limit my Job and progression prospects and the advantages of one over the other.

    any hep would be greatly appreciated.


    Hi sorry no help, but I have the same question as you!

    I am deciding between either Computing & Systems Development HNC (progressing to HND and possibly topping up afterwards) or Computing & Information Technology BSc.

    I think that the HNC & HND is better suited for me, but without speaking to tutors or past/current students I can't be sure.

    I think what path you should take might depend on what area you are looking to work in when you have finished studying, hopefully someone will see this post and give some insight!
