Short courses Computer Science

The School of Computer Science provides courses that enable companies and organisations to retrain, update the skills and develop the careers of their staff.

In the IT sector, skills gaps and shortages often occur, with an on-going need to refresh staff training. However, the time available is often severely limited. That is where we come in.

The School of Computer Science offers the following professional level programmes:

  • Part-time degrees studied entirely online through distance learning. Both final year undergraduate and postgraduate (MSc, PG Diploma, PG Certificate).
  • Individual modules from these programmes that can be studied stand-alone or that can lead to an award through the University's Credit Accumulation and Transfer Scheme (CATS).
  • Custom courses for organisations delivered partly online and partly face-to-face.

This blended approach represents the best of both worlds. It combines the flexibility of online study with the motivational aspects of intensive group working, plus provides access to specialist staff, laboratory and other facilities.
