Applicants will normally hold a recognised first or second class honours degree from a UK university or international equivalent in a relevant subject. We expect that you will have a working knowledge of computers and networks and it is essential that you have practical hands-on experience of at least one programming language.
All International and EU students applying for a course with us must meet the following minimum English language requirements:
Minimum standard – IELTS 6.5 (or equivalent) for study at postgraduate level.
There are two ways to study this course. You can take the general pathway, giving you a rounded computing education and a broad qualification, or you can take the specialist pathways to focus on a defined section of computing and meet your career aspirations. While the pathway option is mostly technical in focus, you will also learn about the business context and develop interpersonal skills that are vital to problem solving in business.
Whichever option you take, you will study six modules and complete a dissertation. Some of the optional modules are only offered according to staff availability and student interest.
