Students are also able to tailor the course to their own personal career ambitions through a research project. Many use this piece of work to springboard the start of their career or a further research study.

Topic covered include databases, data management, web technologies, analysis and computing fundamentals. Students will also study academic research methods, which will then inform their final research project.
