Being able to complete the Diploma of Information Technology and progress directly into the second year of the Bachelor of Information Technology was a big selling point for Daim.

'I'm now so confident with my IT skills, programming and web development. Teachers respond quickly to help in any way they can. I ended up using my hour-long consultation time and received really good feedback on my assessments.'

We have a cybersecurity lab with tools you'd usually pay thousands of dollars to access. We're taught by industry people as well as academics – one of my professors is currently at Microsoft – and you hear about opportunities you wouldn't otherwise. There are lots of opportunities because there's a huge demand for people with these kinds of skills.
