    Default evocca college?

    Hey guys,
    So ive come across Evocca College and are interested in their diploma website design course. I've always been interested in anything IT but this course could be something I could do at home and lead to a job that could be freelanced from home.
    The only thing that puts me off is the pricetag...$25,000 for the course- but with the government help don't have to pay until earn over the threshold.

    Has anyone studied with them? Advice?

    Is there somewhere else you'd recommend for website design study?

    $25,000 just for a diploma? Far out! I would definitely look around. Is there a course you could do through uni? Your Hecs debt wouldn't be much more and you would end up with a better qualification.

    Im currently studying through Evocca, Games Development. I can't recommend them enough, incredibly flexible with parents, and you also get an ipad/laptop to aid you in your study. The 25k is well worth it to me, as I haven't seen a course like it.

    yep, that's what made me very hesitant when I read it! The only reason why I am considering it is they are a lot more flexible than a university and not as long. eeek! so much money! I know heaps of people aren't worried about it, because they won't pay it now anyway, but debt like that is always in the back of my mind.
    I looked into TAFE but they have had really bad feedback with their course as many says its outdated- which is not good for a tech based course.

    I have heard this, which is why I'm considering it. I need flexibility with a 2 1/5 year old and 5 month old. & I do like that they give you a laptop to help with study as I know with web design I would need to purchase a new computer for the programs to study anyway. (my pc at the moment is for my hubby who does uni at night)

    also how do you find the study? is it many hours in a day? I have a 2 1/5 year old and a 5 month old so I don't want anything too full on.

    I just do it whenever. I might not do it a few days then sit and do a tonne of it in one go. It is not a scam, its a government approved course.
