MSc FT Computer Science

G4U1 MSC 1 Year


This MSc programme offers a broad range of advanced study options, with modules taken from a variety of application areas. It is multidisciplinary and, in addition to computer science, you may choose options in which computer science intersects with other fields. The programme prepares you for a wide range of careers depending on your selection of modules studied. Typical jobs after graduation include advanced programmer, software development and support, software engineer, product designer/developer, systems analyst, interface/interaction designer, database developer, and other specialist employment based on your selected study areas.


The Research Methods modules are assessed through coursework alone. All other modules are examined through a combination of coursework and written examinations taken in May/June. To obtain an MSc, students must gain passes in six of the eight modules taken with an overall average of 50 per cent.

In addition to the above, the MSc requires that a satisfactory individual project be completed. MSc students who do not pass the written examinations are only allowed to attempt the project after passing resit examinations the following May.
