Course Content

The bespoke nature of this course means that what you study can really vary. We guide and advise you on planning your course to ensure that it is cohesive and relevant to your needs. You may choose to take a predominately technical approach or to blend technical subjects with project management and design subjects.

Whatever subjects you choose, you learn how to make reasoned, critical decisions for selecting or implementing appropriate computer-based solutions with a business focus. You will leave the course with the technical and interpersonal skills to make an immediate contribution to major projects at the leading edge of computer applications. There is also the potential for you to go on to study for a PhD in a specialist area.

English Language Requirements

CAE score
180(Grade C)

IMPORTANT NOTE: Per 6 April 2015 only the English language tests from IELTS and Trinity College London are accepted for Tier 4 Visa applications to the United Kingdom. Other tests (including TOEFL, TOEIC, Pearson, City & Guilds) are no longer accepted for Tier 4 visa applications to the United Kingdom. The university might still accept these tests to admit you to the university, but if you require a Tier 4 visa to enter the UK and begin your degree programme, these tests will not be sufficient to obtain your Visa. Since the Trinity College London language tests must be taken in one of their exam centres in the UK, IELTS is now the only language test accepted for Tier 4 visas to the UK that can be taken worldwide.

The IELTS test is most widely accepted by universities and is also accepted for Tier 4 visas to the UK- learn more.
