The blend of a postgraduate, vocationally oriented IT qualification with a first degree has proved very attractive to employers. The course is made up of a three week Induction Unit along with eight taught modules.

The eight taught course modules are made up of five compulsory modules and three option modules along with a major project.

Attendance modes are designed to be as flexible as possible. It is possible to switch to the MSc Computing or MSc ISM during the start of the first semester for those who want a less technical programme. The course can be taken in full-time mode over one year or in part-time mode in anything from two to six years. In full-time mode, four taught modules are delivered during each 15 week semester, and the project is carried out during the summer period. Part-time students will typically take two modules per semester over two years then complete their project in a third year. The project will draw upon several of the taught modules and is usually software based.
Each taught module includes three hours of lectures, tutorials or labs per week and full-time students are expected to study for about ten hours each week per module. The taught modules are assessed wholly by coursework or by a combination of coursework and examination.
