Advanced Computer Science, Advanced Computer Science and IT Management (including all pathways) and Advanced Computer Science Master of Research [MRes]
We require a strong First or Upper Second class honours degree, or the overseas equivalent, in computer science, or a joint degree with at least 50% computer science content. Applicants with a minimum of five years relevant computer science industrial experience and a good honours degree, or its overseas equivalent, may also be considered for admission.
Thus we assume that all students on the course have a good background in computer science, reflected, for example, in solid programming and software development skills.
