will i be at any disadvantage when applying for a job as a programmer when other applicants have degrees in computer science?
Maybe. Some games companies can be picky about the education background of their applicants. The other question is what happens if you decide you want/need to apply for a job outside the industry. Will this qualification be recognised?
Ask about the employment rate of the course, what jobs they got and how long did they take. If they have links to their portfolios, even better.
