Just a note to say thanks for the Java Course, I found it very enjoyable and am delighted to have just received my result.
I found your teaching style to be excellent , there are a lot of experts that can't communicate their knowledge but you always got your point across simply and in a way that let us easily understand it. This is a great skill to have.
Thank you for the classes. I found them very good and you where very approachable with questions and happy to help.
When I searched for “Java course” on Google, 51 million results were thrown back at me. Needless to say, I was a bit lost if not completely apprehensive. But I toughed it out and spent the next hour diving through the sea of Java courses. I'm not entirely sure why I selected Fitzwilliam Institute’s online Diploma in Java and Database Programming. Perhaps it was the professional look and feel of their website. Perhaps it was the course information they presented. Whatever the reason, I'm certainly glad I did the Java course at Fitzwilliam Institute. Java was completely new to me, so I felt I'd need a lot of guidance and support to help me through; and Fitzwilliam Institute did just that. The course materials were well structured and easy to follow. The practical exercises, whilst challenging, were interesting and enjoyable. And the tutors were always responsive and helpful, which was great for me, as I was unashamedly low on motivation and confidence. I'm standing tall amongst my IT colleagues now, because not only have I equipped myself with Object Oriented (Java) programming knowledge, but I can also now confidently get my hands dirty with mySQL databases. I would highly recommend this course to anyone who feels a bit light-headed at the mere mention of the word Java or Object Oriented. This course will definitely give you a healthy dose of practical knowledge in Java and mySQL database. Thank you, Fitzwilliam Institute!
