Course and Module Details

Overview

If you’re looking for a career change or are interested in web and software development our MSc Web Development will open a pathway into the IT industry. It requires no previous undergraduate experience in the field of computing. 

Our MSc Web Development blends technical and creative skills into one package, teaching you software development and web design skills. Over the year, you will study software development through a comprehensive introduction to programming with Python before moving on to full-stack development with JavaScript. You will become an accomplished programmer and meet the requirements to join the web development industry. To complement this, you will also study basic and advanced web design to ensure you graduate a well-rounded developer with a flair for digital media. Additionally, you’ll learn how to store and retrieve data, as well as learn about the security aspects of IT. To finish your programme, you will undertake an end-of-year project based on your interests in the field.

After the programme, you can undertake an industrial placement year, allowing you to gain valuable work experience relevant to your career aspirations. 

We deliver all computing programmes in an active blended learning style, with most lectures replaced by workshops and seminars. Our approach provides a learning environment focused on collaborative working in practical lab spaces, immersed in an environment based on working in the IT industry.
