Entry requirements

Students will normally be considered for admission if they have achieved an educational level equivalent to an honours degree in computer science, data science, computing, joint computer sciences and arts/humanities degree, or a closely related subject. Or, from a creative discipline with substantial computational practice such as: Graphic Design; Interaction Design; Interactive Media Design; Web Design; Communication Design; Digital Design; Product Design. Educational level may be demonstrated by: Honours degree (named above); Possession of equivalent qualifications in a design-related or creative discipline; Prior experiential learning, the outcome of which can be demonstrated to be equivalent to formal qualifications otherwise required. Their experience is assessed as a learning process and tutors will evaluate that experience for currency, validity, quality and sufficiency; or a combination of formal qualifications and experiential learning which, taken together, can be demonstrated to be equivalent to formal qualifications otherwise required. Students without the required qualifications, but with professional experience may be eligible to gain credit for previous learning and experience through the AP (E) L system.
