Course overview

Learn while you work. Gain employment-specific computer science knowledge and skills through distance learning and sessions on campus.

 

You’ll gain a strong foundation in programming, software development and contemporary themes in the industry. The course will give you a broad overview of computer science with opportunities to develop specific skills relevant to your role with specially developed units.

 

You’ll study online, off campus, through the use of our virtual learning environment, which will include weekly webinars and online collaboration tools. Occasional on-campus sessions and examinations will help you progress and give you the chance to meet your peers and academics in the department.

 

This course is designed to fit with the requirement for apprenticeships to spend at least 20% of your time (1-2 days a week) on off-the-job training. A typical week will involve two online webinars and the rest of your available time spent on other course content, including independent study. You’ll spend the rest of your week embedding your new knowledge on-the-job with your current employer.

 

Towards the end of the course, you will complete an individual project and e-portfolio over summer before a final End Point Assessment.

 

When you have successfully completed the End Point Assessment, you will graduate with an MSc in Computer Science and pass the degree apprenticeship. As a graduate, you’ll have gained an array of skills in areas such as programming, software engineering and databases. This will help you to progress further in your career.

Who is this course for

Students from any academic background with an undergraduate degree in any subject, but you must demonstrate evidence of relevant quantitative skills (especially algebra and calculus) either through your degree study or by alternative means. We may make an offer based on a lower grade if you can provide evidence of your suitability for the degree.

 

We are only able to accept apprentices from levy paying employers. Please check with your employer if you are unsure whether they meet these criteria.

 

In order to be eligible you must be a resident of and spend at least 50% of your working hours in England. Citizens of other EEA countries, or non-EEA citizens legally resident in the UK for at least the previous three years before the start of the apprenticeship (not for educational purposes), may also be eligible.
