Some students may wish to exit after completing the first year of the 2 year New Zealand Diploma in Software Development (Level 6), and gain the New Zealand Diploma in Web Development and Design (Level 5). In order to gain full-stack development skills, we would strongly encourage you to complete both years of the New Zealand Diploma in Software Development (Level 6) qualification. The reason we encourage this 2 year journey of study is because the job prospects for Software Developers is greater than Web Developers. According to the Ministry of Business, Innovation and Employment (http://occupationoutlook.mbie.govt.nz/manufacturing-and-technology/software-developers/), Software Developers are in higher demand than web developers.

Yes. Our Information Technology courses require you to bring your own device (BYOD) for your study at Vision College.
