This course is designed to meet the existing and continuing demand for experts in e-Inclusion. This course will facilitate an interdisciplinary approach to e-Inclusion/Design for All in ICT.
Professional Practice and Work Based Learning Studies qualifications are specially designed for those that want to develop their expertise within their current profession. The Design for Diversity in ICT course is intended to meet the needs of all ICT professionals and accessibility experts who wish to broaden their experience and gain recognition for their skills and expertise. The course is designed to meet the needs of free-lance consultants, the increasing number of companies who champion digital inclusion and usability and accessibility experts.
This course is vital in developing the right solutions to tackle the last third of the population who are missing out on direct benefits e.g. computers and the Internet, mobile phones, personal digital assistants (PDAs) and digital TV, and indirect benefits e.g. where greater use of digital technology to plan, design and deliver services leads to significant improvements in service planning, design and delivery, particularly to address the needs of disadvantaged groups and individuals.
The course aims to enable students to have the relevant knowledge, personal and professional skills & competencies to design, understand, evaluate and manage a wide range of ICT systems, products and services that adhere to the principles of social inclusion and to understand the ethical and political underpinnings for this work.
The course is run with the support of the Institute of Work-Based Learning.
We welcome applications from graduates with a good honours degree, or equivalent qualification, in an appropriate subject. We also consider candidates with other relevant qualifications and individuals with a minimum of three years' work experience. Those without formal qualifications need to demonstrate relevant work experience and the ability to study at postgraduate level. International students should have achieve IELTS 6.0 (with minimum 5.5 in all components) or TOEFL internet based 72 (with at least 17 in listening & writing, 20 in speaking and 18 in reading).
