You will need to discuss the choice of your actual programme of study – that is, the papers you are going to take and the area in which you plan to write a thesis – with the Adviser from the relevant department. We will go over your entire proposed graduate programme with you, not just the papers you plan to take in the first year. The outcome of the discussion will be recorded on a programme form, which is different from the University enrolment form. If you cannot come to the University in person, we can discuss your proposed programme by email or on the phone.
The degree normally requires 180 points and is completed over an 18 month period. The degree consists of taught papers and a research component which could include research methods papers and/or a dissertation.
To enrol in an MSc you must have completed (or almost completed) a bachelors degree with a major in the relevant subject (software engineering, computer science, mathematics, or statistics) and attained good enough grades for advanced study. If you have a bachelors degree in a non-relevant subject, and then complete an appropriate Graduate Diploma, you may be accepted into an MSc. The degree may be awarded with or without honours.If you have a BCMS(Hons), BSc(Hons) or PGDip you may be eligible to enter directly into the second year of the MSc.
