This course builds upon typical computing courses available at undergraduate level and develops new knowledge and skills in areas critical for the successful introduction of information systems into business enterprises and organisations.

Information systems (IS) today are large, complex, varied in form and distributed, serving different types of people who use a variety of devices to access information. Specialists who recognise diverse business needs, and have a systematic approach to understanding the impact of technology on organisations, are essential to the success of any IS/IT strategy. Equal in importance to the architectures of systems and the supporting technologies, is the management and delivery of content, whether in the form of data, documents, images and sound.

Increasingly, the fundamental systems comprise digital architectures and networks which then embody and enable the distribution of digital content. Developed information systems are in reality socio-technical systems incorporating people, technologies and content. The information systems specialist becomes a more broadly based information professional as they extend their range and scope of operations towards the end users and their environments. Providing services to users and people at large and ensuring information resources deliver value is equally a part of the wider world of information systems.

Course detail

The course also provides a route for people with other backgrounds and experience to engage with the world of information systems. It helps you gain a full understanding of how information systems are designed and constructed, and of the impact of technology and its integration into an organisation.

It will also give you the skills you need to work effectively in a business-consulting environment, and provide a solid basis for research.

Modules

  • Enterprise Architecture
  • Knowledge Management
  • Consultancy and Technical Innovation
  • Information Systems Project Management
  • UML Component Modelling
  • Advanced Rich Media (optional)
  • Data Architecture (optional)
  • Security Management (optional)
  • HCI for Information Systems (optional)
  • Mobile Applications Development (optional)
  • Research Methods
  • Dissertation.

Format

Diverse methods are used to explore all aspects of the field. A strong supportive culture exists amongst the course tutors which enables students to achieve their potential.

Assessment

Course assessed work is a significant part of the total assessment. There is practical work, report writing, critical academic writing and the skills and knowledge gained in these contribute to a capacity to deliver a high quality dissertation.

There are a number of end of module exams. Course tutors provide appropriate support throughout the module to ensure candidates are well prepared.

Career and study progression

The course aims to provide routes into a number of career options and positions. There are good opportunities for employment in the core IS and ICT functions at the development and service levels. Employers require information officers, librarians, information service staff, content and intelligence gatherers and analysts, researchers, editors, searchers and intermediaries, advice and assistance workers, data managers, management information systems staff, as well as multimedia content workers, mapping specialists and cartographers, marketing research, public relations and communication staff. All these wider information professional positions are grounded in the fundamental core the discipline of information systems and the broader computing and ICT environment.

Graduates have a good record of achieving employment and progressing in professional information work especially in the voluntary and private sector as well as in the public sector.

Outstanding graduates have gone on to further study at the level of MPhil and PhD at UWL and at other institutions. We actively encourage students with potential for research to make their interest known early on in their course.

Course Overview

The Legal Practice Course (or 'LPC') is the first stage of a solicitor's professional training. It is an intensive, practical course designed to equip you with the law, procedure and legal skills you will need in order to work as a solicitor or trainee solicitor.

At UWL we are now offering the LPC as part of a Masters' degree – the LLM Legal Practice Course. This incorporates both stages 1 and 2 of the LPC – the professional qualification you will need to become a solicitor. You can, however, choose only to do stages 1 and 2, without the additional LLM elements. You will then exit with the traditional Postgraduate Diploma in Legal Practice.

Why choose this course?

We are validated and monitored by the Solicitors Regulation Authority ('SRA') and receive excellent feedback from our students, so you can feel confident in the quality and standards of our course.

You will receive the training and support you need in order to become an effective trainee solicitor. In addition you will be able to access legal work experience opportunities as well as guidance and expertise from previous LPC graduates who are now working as trainees or qualified solicitors.

The LLM Legal Practice course offers LPC students an optional Masters module on top of the modules required for the traditional professional Postgraduate Diploma in Legal Practice. Students will be given the opportunity to study Research Methodology and to research and write a 15,000 word dissertation on an area related to legal practice. This is not a requirement for training as a solicitor and students can choose whether to do this additional module or whether to exit with the standard Postgraduate Diploma in Legal Practice.
