ENTRY REQUIREMENTS

A related computing qualification at Level 5 (a foundation degree or equivalent).

You will improve skills in a number of core topics to enable you to build on the skills previously gained from your Level 5 qualification.

Teaching methods will include lectures and practical sessions which explore theoretical principles through practical activities in purpose-built labs. Throughout the practical sessions you will receive feedback on your work and progress.

You will also spend several weeks on a small-scale project to enable you to build a deeper understanding of the subject as you work. The feedback you receive will help you to get the most out of your learning.

In order to meet all of the learning outcomes for each module delivered you will be assessed via summative assessments that may be in the form of, but not limited to, report writing, practical work, examinations, case studies, presentations, research and project work.
