Level 4
A firm foundation in computing is provided with a range of core topics such as Programming, Computer
Systems, Web-Based Technologies and Data Analysis. Supporting topics such as Multimedia Authoring, and Investigation and Research help broaden the base of this exciting programme of study.

Level 5
Your theoretical knowledge is developed and applied to real-world problems. The core themes are
continued and supplemented by Database Principals and Practice, Systems Development, and Networks.

Additional sessions are designed to prepare students for a work-based environment.

Work placement: A six-week period of work placement in an IT based environment will enable you to meet the challenge of putting computing, management and project development theories into practice, whilst further developing your technical skills.

Level 6
You are ready to extend and complement your study of the core themes with optional topics that include
Managing a Web-Based Environment, Advanced Systems Analysis, and Network Infrastructure and
Management.

Dissertation
You will undertake a major individual development or research project, investigating a particular aspect of the programme and applying it to a specific situation. For this, you will have access to individual guidance from a personal supervisor who will help you to ensure that the project 'stays on track' and achieves its aims.
