The minimum admission requirement is an Honours Bachelors degree (level 8) in a non computer science discipline. Applicants with other qualifications and relevant experience may also be considered for entry as exceptional cases.
Months of entry
The MSc in Computing Masters Qualifier will offer graduates in non computing disciplines the opportunity to acquire the core knowledge of computing concepts necessary to be eligible for entry to the MSc in Computing programme in the School of Computing. The philosophy behind the qualifier is that graduates from other disciplines will have developed significant transferable skills in analysis, communications and independent learning and so will be in a position to learn a focused subset of computing knowledge quickly.
Graduates of the Masters Qualifier exit with a Continuing Professional Development Diploma in Fundamentals of Computing and those who pass all modules and achieve an overall average mark of 50% can progress directly to the MSc in Computing programme.
Information for international students
Applicants must present a minimum IELTS English proficiency score of 6.5 overall with at least level 6.0 for each component.
