Masters in Computer Science

Technology plays a vital part of our daily lives. This makes it increasingly important that the education of computer scientists is in-line with the rapidly developing field.

About Computer Science


At postgraduate level, you can expect to be awarded a Master of Science (MSc), or a Master of Computing (MComp), with further study awarding degrees such as Master of Philosophy (MPhil) and Doctor of Philosophy (PhD).


A postgraduate degree will normally take one to two years to complete.


Postgraduate course annual tuition fees are set by the institution, which means that they can differ. Postgraduate programmes are generally less expensive than undergraduate programmes. You will find detailed fee information on the institution webpage.

Typical Annual Tuition Fees

  • Postgraduate - £7,500

Topics Covered


A postgraduate degree, such as an MSc, will continue to develop your knowledge and skills gained at undergraduate level. You will study modules on more complex and specialist concepts of computer science, covering both core and contemporary topics. Modules might include artificial intelligence, software engineering, web development, and information visualisation. Assessment methods can include written work, laboratory projects, group work projects, and a major research project.

Entry Requirements

For a postgraduate degree, it is likely that you will need to have an undergraduate degree in computer science, or a closely related subject.

Typical Entry Requirements


  • Degree Requirements - 2:2 or higher
