postgrad We offer taught postgraduate degrees with a range of focus and prerequisites designed to meet your needs.

These degrees teach you state-of-the-art technology in Computing and IT Industries, the rigid computing and engineering foundations of the discipline, transferable skills for professional and team-based work, the ability to partake in large software engineering projects, and the capacity for lifelong learning within a fast and profoundly changing field.

Deadline for applications

Due to the high volume of applications received, and the limited number of places available, applications for the core, advanced and specialist masters degrees are now closed. Those applications received by 27th May 2016 will continue to be reviewed and applicants will receive a decision in due course. Applications received after this date will only be considered in the event that extra places become available. Applications for the MRes in Robotics and Image Guided Intervention and the MRes in Medical Imaging Sciences (CDT in Medical Imaging) remain open. The final deadline for applications is 31 July. Applicants are strongly encouraged to apply early because the remaining courses may also fill up before the deadline.

Applications for admission in 2017 - 2018 will commence mid - November 2016
