Data shows record results for computing students

11th September 2017

The Computing department at Newcastle-under-Lyme College (NULC) are celebrating an exceptional set of results which saw 93% of students on the HND Applied Computing course achieve high grades, with an impressive 47% of students achieving the highest grade possible (distinction).

All students progressed from the College to take up top-up degrees or into employment. 

Paul Simmons, Curriculum Leader for HE Computing at the College, said: “The Class of 2017 have worked exceptionally hard to achieve these results and they have all produced fantastic final year projects including an app that is now for sale through the Android App Store and MIS solutions for employers.”

The course (now called HND Computing Science) is in its seventh year running at the College and is awarded by Staffordshire University.   

Every year around 500 adults choose to study with us on both full and part-time university-level courses including HNDs, HNCs and Foundation degrees.  Subjects include Health and Social Care, Early Years, Art & Design, Engineering, Music Technology, Performing Arts, Business and Sport.
