Graduate Diploma in Science and Engineering
One year full-time
This one-year program is designed to act as a foundation year for overseas students who have completed their first degree in Computer Science, but do not have sufficient qualifications to permit direct entry onto the specialist Masters programmes. The programme is offered jointly between Computer Science and the Language and Learning Unit of the College. All students on the programme will take one compulsory module each semester in English Language and Study Skills as part of their total load of eight course units. All students also take six course units in Computer Science. These units provide a coherent programme of study that, subject to your performance, provide an effective pathway to study Computer Science at Masters level.
Candidates will be able to progress to the linked Computer Science MSc programmes if they have achieved an overall PASS award with an average mark of at least 60 per cent over their academic units (a minimum of four units) and 55 per cent in the two language units (equivalent to IELTS 6.5). This level is consistent with the criteria for entry to the Specialist Masters programs in Computer Science for graduate applicants from outside the College.
