About this course


Course option

1.0year

Full-time | 2022

This programme provides students with the opportunity to study a BSc Top-Up, that covers the core areas of computing and information technology of networking and security, advanced database development and advanced web development.
The curriculum is designed to provide a structured and cohesive focus on the core areas, along with the advanced aspects of how the different areas integrate to create systems using current technologies. Additional options also allow students to tailor the BSc Top-Up to their own interests and chosen career path.
The programme will enhance vocationally relevant professional skills through specific modules, activities within certain modules and the generic opportunity to undertake applied study. Technical and academic skills are embedded in the modules allowing students to emerge from the programme with an updated skill set that can either be used to market themselves with employers or take the opportunity to move into further study, should they wish to.

Modules

At Level 6, students develop a broad knowledge and awareness of key aspects of the computing sector through four 20 credit units and a 40 credit dissertation.
These units are:
• Advanced Database Development
• Advanced Web Development
• IT Security Management
• Network Management and Security
• Dissertation.

Assessment methods

The assessment strategy for students undertaking the Level 6 (Top-Up) programme online also takes into account the different learning needs of online students. The following principles also inform our approach:
• To include a range of assessment types, with these being viewed holistically, within and across a programme structure
• To ensure that at the very beginning of a module students are made clearly aware of the specific, assessed, activities or online participation that will be required of you and of the assessment criteria involved
• To ensure that sufficient time is allowed within modules where there are multiple assessment types for students to grasp the different approaches to assessment.

Assessments for all modules have been designed to be inclusive for all students.

The Longitudinal Educational Outcomes dataset combines HRMC earnings data with student records from the Higher Education Statistics Agency.

While there are lots of factors at play when it comes to your future earnings, use this as a rough timeline of what graduates in this subject area were earning on average one, three and five years later. Can you see a steady increase in salary, or did grads need some experience under their belt before seeing a nice bump up in their pay packet?
