You have recently began a position at Mechachrome software ltd as a junior programmer and have joined a small development team to deliver a Student registration system for a small local college. Bright-Future is a college that currently runs three courses, Computing, Accounting and Business Studies to Home and foreign students. The fees for each course is £3000 for home students and £6000 for foreign students. Each course is 1 year in duration. The college would like the new system to register students onto a course. At times some students may wish to change courses within the college so a feature to enable this should be provided in the final solution. When registering the students, students have the option to pay the full fees upfront or at a minimal pay 1/3 of the fees.
The user interface will be menu driven prompting the user to select a choice, quantity and subsequently to pay by inserting the money. The menu could look something like:
Depending on the option selected from the main menu, sub menus should branch out offering the user different options e.g. if option 1 from the main menu is selected, a sub menu should appear offering the user the choice select a quantity.
The application should allow staff to enter the following information on a Student upon enrolling:
- First name and Surname.
- Date of birth.
- Address including post code.
- Phone number and email.
Student ID number should be automatically generated
