It is assumed that students will have a working knowledge of computers and networks and it is essential that they have practical hands-on experience of at least one programming language. Those who do not have English as their first language will need to demonstrate that they meet the minimum English language requirement of IELTS 6.5 (or equivalent).

Course content

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.
