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 undergraduate degree at Honours level or equivalent in a computing related subject.
For applicants who do not possess a first degree entry onto the course may be granted on the basis of relevant industrial work experience. Such work experience should total 5 or more years.
No work experience is required.
Fortunately enough I was able to find StudyPortals. Right from the start of the application to getting the confirmation of admission I was using StudyPortals.

Only 30 minutes by train from central London, and you arrive at the University of Bedfordshire. Although a new University, it remains an institution with a rich heritage, and academic roots dating back to 1882. The University has a growing global reputation. The number of applications to the University has nearly doubled in two years (UCAS) and our popularity makes us the most upwardly mobile university in the country according to the Times Higher Education.
