What does it mean to have an applied qualification?

An applied qualification combines the theoretical components of traditional studies with an approach that focuses on giving students real-world skills and concepts that are geared toward their chosen career path. Applied qualifications are a response to the growing industry need for work-ready graduates. For this reason, graduates with an applied qualification are highly desirable and the likelihood of employment is increased.

The hands-on approach also makes an applied qualification a more enjoyable learning experience, whilst still covering the necessary theoretical components for this level of qualification.

The vendor certifications contained within the IT qualifications have been identified as highly desired additions to the course by the industry itself. Completing these certifications adds valuable, focused knowledge that will give you an employment advantage.

The highly practical nature of all the applied courses draws from diverse areas of industry. Throughout your studies, real-world examples and test cases will be explored in a practical way to prepare you for your future career plans.
