We know that many people from non-traditional backgrounds would succeed on our courses! That's why we offer two different entry routes, taking into account your prior work experience and relevant qualifications. You will also need to meet our English language requirements.
Additionally, within your two-week induction period you will be set a number of activities designed to test your ability to handle the intellectual and practical demands of the course. You will need to pass these activities in order to continue with your studies.
Academic entry route
In order to satisfy the academic entry route requirements for our PG Cert Computer Science, as a minimum you must have an undergraduate degree from an approved institution, equivalent to a UK Honours degree, or a relevant professional qualification.
Work experience entry route
In order to satisfy the work experience entry route requirements for our PG Cert Computer Science, you must have at least three years' relevant work experience.
English language requirements
As our courses are delivered in English, a high proficiency with English is required. If English is not your first language, your English ability should be equivalent to an IELTS (Academic) score of 6.0. Don't worry if you don't hold an IELTS or equivalent qualification - we offer a free online English test to assess your proficiency.
You don't need to prove your English ability if you are a national of, or have completed a qualification equivalent to a UK degree in, any of these countries.
