I only slag off when there is a reason to do so but im gana hold fire somwhat, Currently studding at WITT - Western institute of technology.

Im doing DipICT L5 which is a diploma in information techonogy level 5

im not overly impressed by the provider only went to it cause its in my home town and they have signficantly downgraded the computer courses offered i dont think i would want to go back any how

long story short im tossing up between two providers for next year

the first wintec in hamilton, im looking at doing the dipict L6 there in the admin and support strain

or sombody suggested weltec in wellington. if i were to go there i would consider doing the same cause i did this year again but at well tech just to make sure im up to scratch as witt was not very good as far as im concerend

basicly i want to here from people that have had experences at these providers preffrably in the it diplomas and degrees but also from any body else that has studdy with them

basicly i dont want to put up with another year like i had this year


note: never studdied at a polytech b4 witt, i have done alot of corosondince and that was probly the best so far but im getting to the level where i need to go to polytechs and that to get the diplomas and degree type courses.

can any body give me some suggestions? or commments on these providers

[Moderator edit (tonyhughes): ", try to keep on topic thanks" in the title is redundant, as its a standing rule on this, and most forums. If every thread had this, it would look like the breakfast of a dog in the forum lists.]




Hu? did i do that?

Hello BrendonGyde
How's things?
Well i can speak on part for Weltec since im there at the moment studying IT, I find the tutors to be more then helpful in trying to help you achive a pass. Also the facilitys are fairly new there and the astetics are clean so no complaints there,Bus stops within a 3-5 minute walk if you have no car Although when it comes to assesments dont expect any help there its like they throw you into the deep end but then again if you did pay attention during classes then this will be a breeze only draw back i find with being at weltech is the Cafe, the food's seriously over priced which means you can buy a Pie for 3.50 or 3.70 i can't quite remember or you can go up the road to petone and get one for a dollar.. But other then that they seem to be a great educational provider and i would recommend going there, but in saying that i have no idea what WinTec is like?

If thats your only issue with them, they cant be too bad! I've had a few friends goto Wel Tec, but none of them have studied IT. For what they do study however, they have no complaints.

Thanks for your replies guys, Sounds hopful on both parts, not to worried about the cafe toast and jam will do me :).  As long as information is provided to the students that is the main thing

what is the teaching style like, at WITT where i am a the moment, alot of th etime it is just stand up and give you two hours of power point which when you boil it down has no relivance to what is on the assesments etc. just some idea on how they go about structuring the course content would be cool thanks.

PS what IT course are you doing?

My strongest suggestion would be not to go to Weltec for anything information technology related.
(Some of the tutors have a thing for assulting students and damaging their property - amongst other things I could go into)

Check out the courses the Computer Power Institute has to offer ;)
Ive also heard good things about Victoria University

No first hand experience... but a guy I worked with is doing it there, he's really enjoying it, did find the main bad thing is just textbooks given aren't very helpful, but what books are?

And Jamman don't get grumpy but Brendon take everything he says with a pinch of salt, he may well be true but this is not the usual case, he seems to have a gift for rubbing people the wrong way sometimes.
