Well, for most of working adults who want to study for a degree, most will go for the part time degree route.

However, the university bridging course may require a full time commitment.

I am also not sure if part time local universities degree require a bridging course or not...

I know the course is cheap.. I mean the opportunity cost of not working if you continue for degree... part time degree ?
Yup, part time degree and at the moment I favor Australian system which consider poly diploma as year 1 so we just need to complete the rest of the core and elective modules to graduate.

Load of Australian universities is generally lighter and more suitable for working adults.

It seems like Temasek Poly and Republic Poly has also came out with their own 2.5 year CET part-time IT course similar to this.

Might be good for those who feel NYP is too far from their workplace or home (for those in the East side)

It is difficult to get a network admin job with a dipolma; most organisations need people with hand-on experience. Try to check out whether any poly will help with internship placement after you complete the course work. Hand on experience in a real life organisation will give you a head start

If youíre gonna be doing freelance/ own business then why not just do it now? You donít need carts for the things u want to do

Yes, I agree with you that those who stays in the East can now go to TP instead of coming all the way to NYP as both courses offer similar subjects.

Unlike during my time, there is only NYP which conducts those subjects.

Hi,

I am glad to hear that someone of my age group shares the same kind of passion that I have for Networking and System Administration.

If that is your passion, then the part time diploma offer at NYP will fit you to a T!

Although there are now more than one Polytechnic offering the part time diploma course offered by NYP of the same name, NYP provides a comprehensive route for IT Networking and System Administration as you will learn both Windows and Linux administration and a full CCNA (in 4 subject in 4 MC with the added Networking bonus of CCNA Voice and CCMA Security) in the diploma.

There are very little programming subject besides the Linux Bash programming in the first MC (if you consider it a programming subject, i prefer to call it an enhancement to the Linux system administration subject in the second MC).

You will also get a chance to learn both Windows Server 2012 and LINUX administration in the course but you will have to do more if you want to pursue the MCSA/MCSE or LINUX certification route.

The security subjects taught in the course will prepare you for the CCNA Security subject in MC5 (on the security aspect, networking is covered by the CCNA subjects via MC1-4).

There are more practical subjects than theory based ones in the diploma course. ITSM, Info Security, Cloud Computing, Green Computing and Virtualisation & Data Centre are the theory based subjects. Although, Cloud Computing, Green Computing, Info Security and Virtualisation & Data Centre do have practical labs, only Virtualisation have an embedded lab test if I am not wrong.
