Teaching methods

Our modules include a mixture of formal lectures, tutorial classes and practical classes. At the start of each module you will be given an up-to-date module outline and reading list. Most modules will provide two or three hours of lectures each week to introduce you to the basic concepts and techniques. These will be supported by lecture notes or handouts.

Lectures are supported by weekly tutorial classes, usually one hour in length, which are held in small groups so that all students can benefit from individual attention. You will be expected to prepare for these classes, for example by attempting a set of exercises or by reading a case study.

Many of our modules have supervised practical classes in the computer laboratories in which you can apply and practise the techniques you have learnt in the lectures. These practical sessions are usually two or three hours long.

You will also be expected to study on your own, using the library for reading research and the computer laboratories to improve your practical skills.

Course material is also available on the University’s own Virtual Learning Environment. This allows students to download lecture notes, submit assignments and share resources in an electronic forum both within the University’s computer network and remotely.

Study options

Students may take the diploma over 9 (April start) or 12 (January start) months. The course is also available on a part-time basis over two years (starting in January).

The Masters by Research (MRes) is a part-time distance learning Masters Degree by research allowing graduates from disciplines related to Computing and I.T. to develop their subject specific and personal skills through a programme of guided and structured research studies. Delivered in the distance learning (DL) mode means that you will be able to access learning materials and interact with staff at the University remotely, using the latest technology and online resources. It is an intensive programme of research under the guidance of a research supervisor who is a specialist in the chosen area of research. The general area of your study must fit in with the overall ‘flavour’ of the award, but within that general area you will be able to specialise in a topic negotiated between you and your supervisor according to a ‘Learning Contract’. The part-time route is very suitable for existing technologists, lecturers and teachers in academic institutions and may produce outcomes that are valuable to a current or potential employer. The distance learning mode of study is also suitable for learners whose situation allows them time to do online research but makes it more difficult to visit the University.

Course content

The MRes programme by distance learning is demanding and requires the equivalent of a minimum of 48 weeks of study in the full-time mode. The distance learning MRes usually takes a minimum of two years to complete in the part-time mode and the maximum period of registration for part-time study is five years. The course structure is heavily negotiated throughout so that it fits what you are interested in. As with all research you will proceed at a pace that suits you, within the guidelines given above. You will need to be highly motivated and personally well-organised. The Programme begins with the Research Methods Module which provides the research training you will use on the remainder of the course. This runs in September each year, so the middle of September is the normal start time. You will draw up a Learning Contract with your supervisor after the Research Methods Module. The remaining modules are taken sequentially.

It is possible to finish the Programme with the award of Pg. Certificate after successfully completing the first two modules, a Pg Diploma after two more modules and the Masters by Research after successful completion of the Masters Dissertation.

Graduate destinations

Currently the Faculty supports research in the following areas of Computing Science, although these are not exclusive: Enterprise, Knowledge and Information Systems, Cloud Computing, Computer Games Programming, Software Engineering and Mobile Systems, the Internet of Things, Networks, Cybercrime and Embedded Systems, Web, Multimedia and Interactive Systems. As an MRes graduate. you would be well suited to a career in any of these areas, or for Computing research in general. The completion of the award often leads to a student being enabled to undertake a further two years of research for the award of PhD. The MRes will gain you exemption from the research methods training course that PhD students usually have to take and will allow you to move directly to PhD study without going through the MPhil to PhD transfer, thereby reducing the time taken to complete the PhD by one year in most cases.
