The current Masters framework identifies the four core areas of Computing, which allows us to provide two thirds of the modules as core with one third of the modules allocated to each of the specialist pathways.

The general pathway provides a rounded Computing education and broadly based Computing qualification for recent UK graduates and equivalently qualified international students. The specialist pathways provide more focused routes for students who have clearly defined career aspirations while still seeking to develop knowledge and skills in a broad range of Computing disciplines.

All modules are 20 credit modules except for the dissertation which is a 60 credit module. An MSc is awarded on successful completion of 180 credits (6 x 20 credit modules + 1 x 60 credit dissertation module). The three levels of award are, 60 credits for a Postgraduate Certificate, 120 credits for a Postgraduate Diploma, or 180 credits for the MSc.

The framework has four core compulsory modules based on the generic areas of design, software, hardware and databases. These modules will be studied by all students.


Special course features

The small student numbers on these very specialist courses ensures that students are given the attention they deserve from staff who are approachable and helpful with a wide range of specialist backgrounds in both research and consultancy.

Typical modules

* Visual Object Software
* Databases
* Modern Computer Architecture
* Specification Analysis and Design
* Software Engineering
* Formal Specification
* Dissertation


* Applicants will normally be expected to have a second-class honours degree or better, and preferably with some computing content e.g. knowledge of a programming language.
* For students from outside the UK, an equivalent qualification will be expected, along with IELTS 6.5 or equivalent.
* Applicants with degree-equivalent professional qualifications or experience will also be considered for entry to the MSc.
