Post-degree information technology courses in English

Post by daniel_g » Tue Dec 09, 2003 4:05 am

Hi,
I'm coming to the end of a four year long university degree, and would like to have some sort of computer related qualification before I start working. In the UK it's possible to do a one year post-degree course in information technology for people who have no previous qualifications in the subject. I was wondering if anyone knows of similar types of courses in Finland (that are available in English and last at most a couple of years) as i'd love to study there. I've looked at a lot of Finnish universities' websites and got very confused as to what's available! Any type of qualification would be good though, i'm not bothered about studying at a university.
Thanks in advance if anyone can help!
Daniel

Thanks a lot, that's exactly the sort of course I'm looking for. Unfortunately that course requires me to have done a computing degree first though.. Don't know why I ever thought it was a good idea to do a degree in ancient history! :roll:

Finnish universities aren't really open to cross-disciplinary degrees, so I guess it is mummification to you. Though say if you came over you might study something in IT, most probably the "how to use a computer" and "advanced Word and Excel"...

Your degree makes you a perfect candidate for a management position though :mrgreen:

Not true. I just did one of their 1 year courses and I don't have a degree. Even though they recommend you have studied in this field before, you can still get on the course and pass. You just have to study a bit more :-)

For the course I took they accepted everyone (just as well as only four of us completed the whole course)

Im glad I applied and took the course even though I didn't meet the criterea, I got 20 credits in computers and telecommunications 8)
These specialization studies are intended for persons with an BSc. (Eng.) compatible or polytechnic degree in Computer and Telecommunication Engineering.

didn't stop me 8) I guarantee if you apply for a 1 year further education course at Arcada they'll accept you.
