Course Summary

How many times have you found yourself saying “There’s an app for that”? Apps – and iOS apps in particular – have become so vital to our daily lives that it’s difficult to imagine life without them. This makes them the most exciting areas in which to grow your knowledge and skills – and this course is the ideal way to get started.

The iOS App Programming and Web Development course is a fascinating and highly relevant programme designed for gap year students, undergraduates, and others who wish to learn how to construct cutting-edge smartphone apps and websites.

Time spent on this course gives students a deeper understanding of these technologies which have become so fundamental to daily life, and equips them with new knowledge and skills that have the potential to lead to a lucrative career, or to supercharge their own start-up business. Even if students don’t target a career in tech, the course provides a useful foundation that will come in handy for a wide range of careers.
