This diploma has all the key knowledge and skills that every new developer needs to start out. And, with Yoobee’s project-based approach to learning, you’ll be taught in a studio-like environment similar to how you could work in the industry.

You can study your diploma online or on campus, and will cover all the foundational skills of a software developer by teaching you design principles, algorithms and programming through real hands-on learning. You get time to fill any gaps within your current knowledge and skills, and the opportunity to explore specialised fields that you'd like to become an expert at.

Once you're skilled up from your first year, your second year gets you to hone in on a particular field of software development, immersing yourself in either A.I, Cloud Computing, Cyber Security or Game Development. These specialised areas were specifically chosen for our diploma as they lead the tech industry world-wide and show no signs of slowing down.

Throughout your study, you get the chance to build rapport and network with other like-minded students, graduate with a New Zealand Diploma in Software Development (Level 6), and the competence and confidence to enter entry-level software developer roles.

Our Tech Faculty have built, and continue to build, strong partnerships with leading tech educators and organisations in New Zealand and around the world, boosting our students’ skills and graduates’ visibility within the tech industry. A direct result of this means that our Software Development students have access to AWS certifications & our cyber security students receive a data-rich digital badges from Cisco Networking Academy to showcase their competence, both will be recognised in the tech industry, enhancing their career opportunities.
