Foundation Degree in IT Buisness and Networking
Just wondered if anyone has gone through university to do this degree. Its a possability for me to do at my local uni. Two nights a week for three years. At the end you get your foundation degree with the option to do the final year for your BSc degree. Over the three years as part of the degree you also pick up as a requirement the A+ Security + CCNA and MCSA. It looks good to me ltho very time intensive and hard work.

This sounds good, where are you planning on doing this, which Uni?

looks super, would really be a great start to a career. Although part of the fun of a degree is the social side, might be worth consdering doing it full time for a year and doing the mcsa on top.

Its at the university of bedfordshire.
Am doing it part time because its in the evening and have just started a great new job that I want to continue with. So I get to work all day in our 3 man IT department and go to uni in the evenings only twice a week.
I already have my Network+ and it seemeds like a good way to conntinue.

I have looked about at degree's to help with my CPD - this sounds just the thing I am looking at doing. I will have to have a look if its available anywhere up here.
I have also looked at the Open University - has anybody done or know anybody that have studied through the Open University?

My biggest issue with ou is time it takes to do the degree as like you andrew want to do a degree.
At moment my biggest thing is lack of time in evenings to attend course so distance learning is only options so that is either OU or the other online degree (name escapes).
Wonder can you do foundation degree by distance learning?

@RussDev: Yes you can do a foundation degree the distance way, Lancaster Uni offer a three year course with only 1 day per month on site, this consists of 5 modules each lasting around 6 - 7 months and costing around £650 - £750 per module.

Just add my two pennorth here. I'm doing the Education, Research & Technology degree at the Ultraversity which is all online, and my biggest problem has been managing to fit it all in to a normal life. Before I started this degree I could spend time at home researching solutions to problems at school. Not any more, that's out the window, though in a way that's no bad thing as I only get paid for the time spent in school.
Having said all that if I were in your shoes I'd go for it. I'll be 56 when I finish the course but I don't feel I've wasted my time. good luck.

I'd be interested in what the other option is when you think of the name - cheers Russ.

Care to give a general over view as you've done the complete thing? Also are you stopping at that point or doing the final year of a main couse with Lancaster to get your BSc?

Looks a good course, wish they did it near South Wales though.
