In the beginning (of the Internet), we started connecting people to computers. With the advent of the mobile phone, we started connecting people to people.

SG138 Computing Undenominated Level 7 – Ordinary Bachelor Degree

Computing is an exciting, fulfilling career choice. We do recognise however that it can be difficult to fully appreciate the differences between different computing programmes. We also believe that there is no better way to help you make that decision than by experiencing a range of computing modules. For this reason, all our CAO computing programmes share a common first year. These modules provide an excellent foundation to your further study but more importantly they help you confirm which programme is right for you.


SG102 Computing Undenominated Level 6 – Higher Certificate

The Higher Cert in Computing is a 2 year programme where you begin in this shared first year alongside all other computing students across our programmes. At year-end, we counsel you on your next step and (space permitted) admit you to your chosen programme at that stage.
