How will I study?
You will study a number of core modules and options. In the summer term, you will undertake a supervised dissertation, usually based on a multimedia programming project.
Assessment is through:
-Software and programming projects
-A 12,000-word dissertation
On our Masters courses, you’ll complete a substantial MSc project, which is often practical as well as theoretical. The project is designed for you to excel in your personal and professional development and to consolidate the material covered in your modules. It demands individual responsibility and exposes you to issues of:
-Documentation and communication
-Critical awareness and creative thinking
In Informatics, you are encouraged to seek a project with a commercial or industrial flavour. Finding an industrial sponsor or host is fine, though you will still need an academic supervisor.
