Many thanks for your advice. Warmest regards.
If you wish to pursue a computer science diploma, some mathematics will be required. That usually means at least two semesters of calculus, one each for number theory, automata theory, linear algebra and some other advanced topic (I took numerical analysis). If you can't stand the thought of that much math, you might want to consider an Information Technology (IT) or Management Information Systems (MIS) diploma in a business school instead. These programs are quite similar to Computer Science, and as long as you don't want to be a researcher or pursue a PhD in Computer Science, should help you find meaningful employment in the computer field.
HTH, and good luck!
