Our MSc in Computer Science by Research involves an extended (one-year) individual research project carried out as part of one of our established research groups, combined with selected taught modules.

This programme is suitable for outstanding students who have an interest in advanced research-based study in one of our research specialisms: Computer Vision; Cognitive Science; Risk and Information Management (RIM); Computer Science Theory; Game AI; and Computational Creativitiy. The expectation is that every graduate from the degree will publish at least one conference paper as part of their research. It will give you solid theoretical and practical research competence in your chosen field of study and will enhance your employability. Successful completion of the programme may also provide a route to further study at doctoral level or for a research position in industry.

This programme will:

  • Give you a basis for further study.
  • Allow you to specialise in an area of your choosing.
  • Give you a free choice from all the modules available, which are suitable to your project.

Programme structure

MSc Computer Science by Research is currently available for one year full-time study, or two years part-time.

You will join one of our research groups, taking four selected taught modules and completing an extended research project. You will have the opportunity to develop further research and technical skills and to be able to demonstrate a level of independence that is greater than developed on a purely taught programme.

Full-time

Undertaking a masters programme is a serious commitment, with weekly contact hours being in addition to numerous hours of independent learning and research needed to progress at the required level. When coursework or examination deadlines are approaching independent learning hours may need to increase significantly.

Part-time

Part-time study options often mean that the number of modules taken is reduced per semester, with the full modules required to complete the programme spread over two academic years. Teaching is generally done during the day and part-time students should contact the course convenor to get an idea of when these teaching hours are likely to take place. Timetables are likely to be finalised in September but you may be able to gain an expectation of what will be required.

Important note regarding Part Time Study

We regret that, due to complex timetabling constraints, we are not able to guarantee that lectures and labs for part time students will be limited to two days per week and we do not currently support any evening classes. If you have specific enquiries about the timetabling of part time courses, please contact the .
