Then our Computing for Business programme is the degree for you!

Our Computing for Business degree is an exciting programme that combines core computing skills along with a strong business focus. The main ethos of our course is to give you the skills and practical experience employers are looking for, while our strong emphasis on entrepreneurship equips you with enough organisational skills to allow you to maximise your business potential.

Our Industrial Liaison Board maintains close links with industry and employers, ensuring our course reflects the latest developments in business practice and technological development.

Course Modules

The Computing for Business course is either three years full-time, four years with an optional one-year work placement or five years part-time. We’re fully accredited by the British Computer Society, the chartered institute for IT, so our course will set you on the path to become a Chartered IT Professional (CITP).

In your first year, you’ll cover core components of computing in business such as information systems modelling and design, programming, web technologies and network systems. Our practical approach to learning will ensure you get plenty of hands-on experience.

You’ll also complete a year-long project of your choice in your final year, with the chance to work with others nationally and internationally.

There’s also the option to undertake a year-long industrial placement after your second year, usually paid. We have long-standing links with many well-known employers who can offer you a worthwhile placement. Like many of our students, you could go on to gain permanent employment with your placement organisation.
