    Hi there, has anyone done this course in DIT? I was thinking of applying and I'll email them for some details, but I was hoping to find someone who has completed it already, or is thinking about doing it. I was wondering how many days per week the classes would be, or what kind of hours it would demand (aside from personal study time)

    I completed the Diploma in NCI recently. Course content looks to have taken in a lot of the feedback on the course (looks much better content wise) for the next batch. On springboard too.

    Hi,
    I was just wondering did you do this course in the end? I'm thinking of applying this year myself. I was wondering the same thing in relation to days per week etc. as I'm currently working full time and have family commitments.

    Any info at all would be appreciated. thanks!

    Just wondering on this too. Anyone in a position to compare the DIT (TU) and NCI courses in terms of quality, time committment etc (I know the awards are a bit different)

    Hi, I’m thinking of doing the part time diploma in NCI. I’m just wondering how did you find the course? What were most students backgrounds? I’m from a science background with some experience of data analysis.

    Currently doing the postgrad dip. A fairly good mix of backgrounds, a lot of science and it folks. Quite a decent proportion of the class are relatively new to the statistics side of things. The mix is very helpful tbh, folks are pretty friendly and happy to chip in
