FAQ

If I don't have a Computer Science degree should I apply?

The combination of your degree and work experience could make you eligible to apply for the MSc degree. However, you will need to make clear all of your programming and computer science related experience (exams results as part of your degree, courses taken as part of your work experience etc) on your application form. Please be aware that the demand for scholarships are high on this programme so it may be difficult to obtain a scholarship without a Computer Science degree. We are unable to give you any further information until we have received all scholarship applications.
