What is the difference between an Online Bootcamp Program, a Short Course and a Postgraduate Program?

An Online Bootcamp Program is an intensive and accelerated learning program made up of a collection of self-paced eLearning components and live online classes that students are required to attend.
The Online Bootcamp program curriculum contain a combination of specifically chosen courses and career-critical skills that are aligned to a job role.

A Post Graduate Program is quite similar to an Online Bootcamp Program but do not involve self-paced online learning. The Post Graduate Program course structures are cohort based. This means students are required to complete training in their specific chosen schedule enabling students to focus and practice skills they have learned in class from start to finish.

A Short Course on the other hand are shorter courses that is designed to target developing a specific skill set or topic. They generally are much quicker to complete than Bootcamp Programs.


What is cloud computing?

Cloud computing refers to the delivery of computer services and resources online. This includes networks, servers, databases, software, analytics, artificial intelligence, and cyber security - among others. The technology comprises remote network servers hosted on the internet to store, manage, process, and provide access to such data, rather than relying on a local network or a personal computer. Popular examples of cloud computing services include streaming services such as Netflix, e-mail services like Gmail, and online backup storage such as OneDrive.

Those interested in exploring both the fundamentals and advanced skills of cloud computing - helping them pursue entry-level opportunities in the field - can acquire the expertise they need through our Post Graduate Program in Cloud Computing.

5 star

Upskilled have been incredibly supportive and understanding throughout the duration of my course. Due to some personal tragedies and circumstances it took me longer to complete my Diploma. Student Support arranged extensions on the deadline and I was able to complete my Diploma. My tutor, Gideon was supportive and assisted with answering questions when I had them and encouraged me all the way.


5 star

As a mature aged student I was not sure that studying via the internet would be for me. Once started I found the course to be very informative and easy to follow. The feedback I received from my instructor was timely and supportive. I would recommend Upskilled. Thanks all.
