'considering they are university, they should be good however'...the devil is in the detail....it is based in a business park ON a university campus and has naff all to do with the Uni apart from the address. Check out some of the other 'businesses' there....Oooops, I get 'Internal Server Error' when I just tried to log on. Perhaps they need some good systems admin. :-)
The BTEC courses are well respected but that, in itself, does not guarantee a job. The course is aimed at repairing desktop/lap[top computers for home and small businesses. Just check and see how many local repairers there are for these will be your competition. Then phone each of them with an 'urgent' repair to see how quick they can complete it - this will indicate how busy they are. If you are thinking of going into a large company as a sys admin they will require much more experience and you will be fighting for very, very poorly paid jobs with many others who will have much higher quals. We are hitting a great impending spending cull so Local Authorities, the usual place of choice for sys admins, will be cutting staff like there is no tomorrow.
treat the course as a learning start but do not expect a job nor give up a job for it or you WILL regret it.
A local business here advertised for a sys admin (which was basically a clerk's job. The pay was £14K and they had 200+ applicants of which half were incredibly highly qualified for the post. This was 2 months ago and things have not improved since.
