As a young boy Immanuel Lucky Ndilowe, from Malawi, knew he wanted a career in IT. He was interested in gadgets; he wanted to know how computers worked. At 8, he learnt to open up and reassemble his desktop with guidance from his cousin, a computer engineer.
Having also heard about the University of Queensland from his cousin since age 8, Immanuel set his sights on the university; searches on the net as he grew older confirmed for him UQ’s good reputation for IT.
How did he come by HELP University? He heard about HELP from his friend in Legenda College; an agent later confirmed the availability of HELP’s transfer program to UQ.
Currently enrolled in the Dip IT course at HELP, Immanuel finds it ideal. The lecturers willingly provide detailed explanations for any query; there’s lots of practice, and what he is learning suits his interests. He is particularly happy about programming: almost every tutorial is a programming session preceded by an MCQ test, after which students have to create a program. Visual Programming and C-Programming are tough, he admits, but he is coping well. The grades he has accumulated so far – 1 High Distinction, 4 Distinctions and 3 Credits – are all within UQ’s admission range.
Immanuel’s experience demonstrates that no childhood dream is too impossible for HELP to convert to reality.
