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.
Applicants should have:
A good first degree in computing or computing science
OR a suitable numerate subject (such as mathematics, physics, engineering, information systems or multimedia) that includes software development experience.
No work experience is required.
This programme is accredited by the British Computer Society BCS.

For a full Chartered status there are additional requirements, including work experience. Please contact the BCS for further information.
