The old grounds of a monastery has been transformed into a new IT campus on the Isle of Man.

The IT and Education Campus welcomed future tech gurus to The Nunnery site in Douglas this week.

Partnered between University College Isle of Man (UCM) and International Centre for Technology Ltd, the campus is potentially the first section of an IT business park.

UCM is offering degree courses in various different platforms, which reflects the island's thriving IT sector - particularly in e-gaming.

The Isle of Man has world-leading IT infrastructure and e-business now represents 25% of the Island’s GDP. By launching the IT and Education Campus, we are directly nurturing the continued growth of the sector and developing its future workforce.
