Content

This programme is particularly attractive to those from an Arts and Social Sciences background as well as those who have studied in other branches of the physical sciences who wish to develop Information Technology skills, either to change direction or simply to "add value" in their existing area of expertise.

This is a well-established and highly regarded programme which allows you to develop skills in web and applications design, including key aspects of security.

Key areas of IT administration are examined while still providing a grounding in programming and software development. It has consistently evolved to reflect changes in technology and the demands of industry so you can be assured of a current degree programme.

Entry Requirements

Minimum entry requirement is a UK Honours degree (or an honours degree from a non-UK institution which is judged by the University to be of equivalent worth) at 2:2 (lower second) class or above.

While no prior computer programming experience is necessary, a basic level of computer literacy is expected. Those with a Computer Science degree from a non-UK university, or other computing background, will be considered on the understanding that you may be repeating some material.
