Applicants for the programmes must normally be graduates of this or another University or of the C.N.A.A., with an upper 2nd class honours or above (successful completion of a masters level PGCE will classify as 'above'), or have other specially approved qualifications which satisfy the Admissions Sub-Committee that they are suitably qualified to undertake the programme.
Teaching experience may be considered appropriate in some cases (see pathway specific specifications). However all students must normally demonstrate a personal or professional interest in the academic study of education.

- New educational advances in terms of technological and software based solutions and their impact on learning.
- Elements of the ACM K-12 Computing curricular and how this can improve the robustness of ICT education
- Ways in which such software is designed and built thereby providing a robust grounding on how such systems can be evaluated
- Knowledge of the impact existing technologies are having in formal and informal educational setting and the research approaches used to collect such evidence
