HNC Computing (January Start)
Courses at UCEN Manchester combine a variety of teaching and learning activities including seminars, lectures, tutorials, practical workshops and independent work individually as well as in groups.
In addition, these primary teaching and learning methods may be supplemented with field trips, work placements, guest lectures, presentations and group activities as applicable to each subject area.
UCEN campuses have libraries equipped with computers and printers for students which can be used in addition to the classrooms and course specific workspaces such as technology suites, workshops, laboratories and artistic/photographic studios.
As well as the software available to students on campus computers such as the Adobe suite, students are also able to use Microsoft Office remotely from their own laptops and access course materials using the Virtual Learning Environment.
