    Courses for Graduates in any Subject

    MSc Computer Science

    If your degree is not in Computer Science, typically you study 60 credits worth of foundation modules, 60 credits worth of optional, advanced modules and a 60 credit project in computer science.


    Our online masters programme is designed to give graduates the up-to-date skills and knowledge sought after by employers, whether in business, industry, government or research.

    These courses will prepare you for a career in many areas including research, IT or software development. If your first degree was not in computer science, it will enable you to apply advanced computing techniques to your original discipline or to change career direction into the IT industry.

    Teaching methods

    Our online degree programmes are taught 100% online when studied independently, or supplemented by tutorial support when studied at a local study centre run by one of our online partners (“blended” or “tutored e-Learning”). For more details, please visit our online programmes website. Assessment is 100% by coursework.

    You will participate in the learning experience through the University’s on-line learning environment, StudyNet. You will receive learning materials, take part in discussions and submit your assignments online. Additionally, you will receive study resources such as key textbooks and any specialist software. You will have access to the University’s extensive online library facilities, or be able to visit in person if you so choose.

    The amount of study time required is no different from that needed for an on campus programme. You should expect to spend at least 30 hours per week if studying full-time, and in proportion if part-time.
