For almost all our MSc programmes, an upper second class degree is normally required, usually in electronic engineering, computer science, maths or a related discipline.
Students with a good lower second class degree may be considered on an individual basis. We will consider unrelated degrees, if you have evidence of significant relevant industrial experience.
MSc Computing and Information Systems
For the MSc Computing and Information Systems, you will need to hold a first degree in a subject not related to computer science, or a degree with less than 50 per cent of the modules in computer science subjects. An upper second class degree is normally required, although students with a good lower second class degree may be considered on an individual basis. We also need evidence of mathematical ability equivalent to UK GCSE grade B.
English Language Skills
If you are an international student, you will need to have English Language skills to a recognised standard. The minimum requirement is IELTS 6.5 or or TOEFL 92 (internet based). If you do not quite meet this requirement (e.g. if you have IELTS 6.0), you should consider enrolling on a Pre-sessional English Language course run by the College.
