The MSc Web Development (Extended International) award forms a postgraduate qualification for you to focus specialist study on web development issues such as method and practical implementation aspects. In choosing this award you will have the chance to develop knowledge attained from your undergraduate study and expand this into a deeper level, learning new and emerging technologies. Apart from focusing on industry perspectives you will also develop a strong research perspective relevant to issues and areas of web development. There is an increasing need for new graduates with web development skills and knowledge appropriate for designing and developing applications for business and industry. On the computing extended MSc you will spend your first semester studying modules which have been written to provide you with the academic, professional and technical skills that you will need to succeed
None UK / none EU applicants who require the Tier 4 visa for a full time study in the UK are not able to apply for the Sandwich degree in the first instance due to Immigration regulations. However, we do encourage International students on a Tier 4 visa , once enrolled, to apply for a placement. Students who are successful with finding a placement will be provided with help and advice with their visa extension application (subject to the University deadlines and Immigration requirements).
On the computing extended MSc you will spend your first semester studying modules which have been written to provide you with the academic, professional and technical skills that you will need to succeed on your chosen award. All students on the extended MSc study the same modules for one semester and then study specialist modules depending on their degree. This means that whether you have chosen MSc Computer Science, MSc Computer Networks & Security, MSc Web Development or any of our other taught MSc Computing awards, you will study the following modules in your first semester:
Academic English: This module will help you to develop your English Language speaking, listening, reading and writing skills and will introduce you to the conventions of academic writing.
Study Skills & Employability: This module will help you to develop the skills and knowledge required to support study at Masters level. It will also help you to develop skills which will aid you in the job market and will look at things such as writing a C.V. and creating a personal development plan.
Computing Fundamentals: This is a double module which has been designed to provide an introduction to fundamental concepts which underpin Computing. The module will enable you to revise and refresh your existing skills to prepare you for study on your specialist awards.
After successfully completing the first semester, you will be able to study core modules and choose from option modules as set out in your award handbook. For information about the structure of your award and the modules you will study after the first semester, please see the award handbooks.
After finishing the award you could be employed as a web page designer, database expert, mobile multimedia developer, multimedia researcher, e-commerce specialist or within general computer science.
Normal requirements are at least a UK second class honours degree or equivalent in a related computing discipline. If you do not meet the above but have significant appropriate experience, your application will be considered, provided that you satisfy the University that you are capable of responding to the challenge of postgraduate work. If your first language is not English, you will need to demonstrate that you are fluent enough to cope with the course. A minimum score of IELTS 6 or TOEFL 550 (213 computer-based) is normally required.
