Highlights

The New Zealand Diploma in Web Development and Design (Level 5) teaches students how to develop great websites in just one year.

If you are wanting flexible study, this course only requires 2-days a week in class, with the additional option of one-on-one tutorials available when needed. This allows you to do self-directed study and part-time work. Small class sizes allow our tutors to be hands-on with their students learning.

No University Entrance is required to enter this programme.

This is the first year exit qualification of our two-year Level 6 Diploma in Software Development.


About This Course

This course is designed for those wishing to start their own web design business, want to work within an established organisation or up-skill their own level of understanding of web design. The programme takes you from determining client needs to choosing a CMS, utilising databases, designing the user experience and configuring a website.

The year focuses on the languages used behind most websites today, PHP, SQL and JavaScript, developed within a responsive framework, which can render to all devices. The final project will require you to design a fully functional website that integrates a database for collecting and outputting information with front-end and back-end capabilities. This includes a user to login and logout with different access rights, per user, and have all forms validated for errors.

From here, graduates can move onto the final year of our Software Diploma, or exit with a Level 5 Diploma in Web Development and Design.
