    One of a range of degrees from the taught Masters Programme at the School of Computer ScienceOur course is especially designed for graduatesof numerate subjects other than computerscience. It is mostly taught separately from theother courses.It intensively covers a broad range of the keyprinciples and techniques of computer science.

    There is an emphasis on software development,in particular when applied to solving problemsin other disciplines. Depending on the moduleschosen, it can lead to a career in areas such assystems development, IT management, or thedeployment of advanced applications in specificdisciplines.

    The course lasts for 12 months over three semesters for the September start or 16 months for the January start, with a break during the summer period: May to September. This break can be used for further study, work experience or a holiday.

    On the 1st route, i.e. if your bachelor's degree is not in Computer Science, typically you will study four taught 15-credit foundation modules in the first semester, two or more advanced specialist modules to make a total of 60 credits in the second, and will undertake a 60 credit project in the third.

    On the 2nd route, i.e. if your bachelor's degree is in Computer Science, you will study four or more taught, advanced specialist modules in the first two semesters to make a total of 120 credits, and will undertake a 60 credit project in the third. Alternatively you can elect to replace up to 30 credits worth with masters modules taught by the University's Business School.

    UK requirements for international applications

    Universities in the United Kingdom use a centralized system of undergraduate application: University and College Admissions Service (UCAS). It is used by both domestic and international students. Students have to register on the UCAS website before applying to the university. They will find all the necessary information about the application process on this website. Some graduate courses also require registration on this website, but in most cases students have to apply directly to the university. Some universities also accept undergraduate application through Common App (the information about it could be found on universities' websites).

    Both undergraduate and graduate students may receive three types of responses from the university. The first one, “unconditional offer” means that you already reached all requirements and may be admitted to the university. The second one, “conditional offer” makes your admission possible if you fulfill some criteria – for example, have good grades on final exams. The third one, “unsuccessful application” means that you, unfortunately, could not be admitted to the university of you choice.

    All universities require personal statement, which should include the reasons to study in the UK and the information about personal and professional goals of the student and a transcript, which includes grades received in high school or in the previous university.

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. The IELTS test is most widely accepted by universities and is also accepted for Tier 4 visas to the UK- learn more.
