Evening and weekend study
For our UK and EU students, we offer the study option of evenings and weekends. This study option offers exactly the same levels of student support and the ability to balance your full-time studies with your personal life. Typically, classes are timetabled for two weekday evenings and one Saturday per week.
In the first year students will be introduced to a number of key principles and concepts in computing technologies, these include Maths and Algorithms, Systems Analysis and Design, Data Modelling and SQL Language and Web Development.
Year 2 will see students introduced to a range of specific topics, developing their understanding of particular systems such as mobile technologies, cloud computing and big data, as well as build a foundation in the industry critical issues of computer security and data analytics.
In the final year students are given the opportunity to design, plan and complete a substantial piece of independent research and development work that requires students to develop a solution to a significant computing problem. In this year, students will also develop industry critical skills in Cyber Security and Project Management and Professional Issues, leaving graduates of this programme with the transferable skills and experience required to secure a variety of roles.
