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

Applications for 2022/2023 are now closed. Applications for the 2023/2024 cycle will open in October 2022.

The deadline for applications for the 2023/2024 cycle is 31 July 2023; however, please be advised that we reserve the right to close applications before this date. As such, we recommend applying sooner rather than later.

Application Fee

Note to prospective students

The Department will only assess complete applications. This means that we must be in receipt of both references as well as the transcript of results, CV and personal statement before we begin to view and assess an application. To that end, we recommend applicants keep track of whether their references have been sent and be pro-active in chasing their referees if necessary.

Please also be advised that meeting the minimum entry requirements does not guarantee an offer will be made.

Fees and Funding
