study Computer Science

Our practical MSc Computer Science (Conversion) course is designed for non-computing graduates to prepare you for how computing tools, techniques and methods can be used in practical situations.

You’ll learn how to exploit technology to solve real world challenges so graduates leave us equipped to explore how digital technology can be applied in their non-computing fields, or ready to work in IT roles across a range of disciplines, including technology, business, law enforcement and public services.

Choose one of three pathways depending on your career ambitions or area of interest: pure computing, computing and law or computing and business.

Alongside this specialised knowledge, you will also develop transferable skills such as teamwork, problem solving and organisational skills, putting you at the top of the candidate list with future employers.
