1. Questions

Glasgow Caledonian University is currently developing a new Postgraduate course on .NET Application Development. This course will combine the expertise of our lecturers with the industry-standard Microsoft Official Curriculum. This course will offer a series of academic qualifications, starting with a Postgraduate Certificate and potentially leading on to a Postgraduate Diploma and an MSc, and will also provide preparation for Microsoft Certification in .NET specialist areas. A Postgraduate Certificate is likely to take 3 months of full-time study or 6 months part-time. A full MSc takes 1 calendar year of full-time study and 2 to 3 years part-time.

This short survey is designed to find out how we can best deliver this course to meet the needs of potential students. We are interested in the views of potential students, employers who wish to develop staff and employers who recruit developers.
