Entry requirements for these courses depend on the course in question. Normally those who apply for such courses have a number of years of work experience within management or IT.
If you do not have the necessary requirement we also provide you with foundation courses that will provide you with the entry requirement for your diplomas.
You can tell from the campus facilities that STC invests money to give students a great educational experience, which I do not believe other institutions do as much.Vanessa Mercieca
