Griffith CD or NCI for HDip Computing??

    Hi Guys

    Just looking for some advice on this course which I'm thinking of doing part-time. I'm drawn to the part-time course in Griffith as it's 18 month's(3 evenings per week) and looks more manageable but there is no work experience included in this compared to NCI's course(which is 12 months and just seems a lot more intensive).
    I have a Level 6 Computing Degree(baby stuff I know) but I want to save money and use my old Level 8 Business Degree to speed things up a bit( which also allows me to work full-time).
    So to ask a few questions to those IT professionals and GCD/NCI alumni alike.

    1. Is the HDip equivalent to a BSc?
    2. Is the lack of work placement going to seriously hinder my chances of getting work?
    3. Those who have gone to griffith what was your experience of it? Was the degree enough to get into a job?
    4. Should I try and finish a part-time BSc instead?(which is more expensive and time consuming)
