Ayoola Marshall

3164.jpg “I started studying at London Met in September 2004, five years after completing my BSc in Computer Information Systems back in the Caribbean. Understandably, getting my brain into study mode again was a bit of a challenge and pursing a master's degree part-time requires a delicate balance between work, school and home life. Fortunately, my first semester involved two very interesting modules run by two highly knowledgeable professors and this inspired me to carry on.

"The technologies being taught are up-to-date and relevant for this ever-changing IT industry and what I have learnt so far has really enhanced the work that I do as a software and solutions developer. I’ve already applied the new techniques (particularly related to internet application development and database management) to the systems I’ve developed. As a result, commendations have come from my colleagues, managers and clients on the improved performance and robustness of the systems.

All and in all, I definitely see this course as being a step in the right direction towards me achieving my career objectives in the software design and development fields and look forward with great anticipation to successful completion."

Freddy Victor De La Cruz Flores

3165.jpg “Since I arrived in England from Peru, my goal has been to study for Cisco Certification. In order to obtain this, I needed to find a good institution, which had all the right facilities. I looked everywhere in London, including Richmond (the American University), and lots of IT schools in central London. Finally when I visited London Metropolitan University, I decided that it was the place to do my studies.

"So the next step was to contact the person in charge of Cisco courses, who gave me a really good explanation of how the course would be delivered, and showed me all the installations and equipment. One week later I was starting my CCNA Course. I have really enjoyed the year that I have spent here studying… the atmosphere, the library, the IT tower, and of course my multicultural classmates.

"The first year was pretty smooth, and I was ready to carry on with the next step in Cisco courses – the CCNP. During this course, my life at London Met got even better – I met really nice people and I made good friends. As I was doing my CCNP, my first work proposition arrived, so my classmates and I went to work for BT. Life couldn’t be better -– learning good practice at one of the UK’s biggest companies, studying here, and finding time to play tennis in the centre near the college.”

"I have really enjoyed my student life at the University and its facilities, from the university bars and cafeterias to the gym and life on campus. My lecturers were very cooperative, friendly and helpful when I needed anything. I was amazed when I saw the Cisco Academy department, as it is spacious and very well equipped. Since I have finished my CCNP, I have been offered several jobs.

"This is certainly the place to be for a better career.”
