Course Overview

Centred on the industrial application of computing, our course will give apprentices a sound foundation in practical and theoretical computation with emphasis on the practical applicability of computing in real-life settings.


Developed and taught by a practicing group of influential computer scientists, apprentices studying this course will be exposed to emerging ideas in AI, human computer interaction, cybersecurity and programming.


Apprentices study online and off-campus through the use of our virtual learning environment, which will include weekly webinars and online collaboration tools. Occasional visits to campus are required for course induction sessions. This a great opportunity for apprentices to meet other members of the cohort as well as academics from the Department of Computer Science.


Towards the end of the course apprentices complete an individual project. The Capstone Project is the culmination of an apprentices’ learning and an opportunity to deliver a rigorous piece of independent study designed to demonstrate an understanding of the digital and technological challenges faced by organisations.


On successful completion of the End Point Assessment apprentices will graduate with an MSc in Computer Science and pass the degree apprenticeship.
