Course content

This flexible course offers a largely free choice of modules from our range of Advanced Master's programmes.

It is likely to appeal to computing graduates whose interests span more than one specialism and/or those seeking the freedom to explore a variety of advanced topics. Depending on the options chosen, this course can serve as a springboard for employment or research.

This programme is available with an optional industrial placement of between eight and 50 weeks. The course duration varies depending on the options taken.


Most programmes will require you to study a combination of compulsory and optional modules. You may also have the option to take modules from other programmes so that you may customise your programme and explore other subject areas that interest you.

Teaching and Assessment

Assessment is through a mixture of written examinations and coursework, the relative weights of which vary according to the nature of the module. The final project is assessed by a dissertation.
