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.
