Throughout the programme you will be taught by a professional team of lecturers who have been selected for their academic competence and practical understanding of their subjects.

In the computing pathway you will learn about how innovative technology works and how to take advantage of it. You will learn in-depth mathematics required for computing students, English for specific purposes with the focus on IT-related areas, problem solving in science and mathematics, information technology and web development. 

In the business pathway you will learn about how businesses operate and how to manage organisations in a business environment. You will learn about marketing, business environment and human resource management, English for business purposes, and problem solving and mathematics to develop your skills. 

You can develop the skills and knowledge that you need to study at undergraduate level.  Building on your strengths and working on your weaknesses, so that you can feel confident that by the end you are ready to commence a degree course, and to apply the skills to undertake direct and independent learning, which will help you to achieve your potential. This will allow you to embark on Level 4 study in an appropriate undergraduate discipline, confident that you have developed the skills and chosen the most relevant subject area(s) to specialise in, which will allow you to perform strongly at degree level and enhance your career aims.

In the second semester students will take the three core modules on Mathematics for Computing, Communication and Study Skills, Fundamentals of Computing. This will build a foundation of core skills and knowledge for further modules on the course. Mathematics for Computing & Communication and Study Skills. Overall, for a 20 credit module you will have 200 learning hours, which includes contact class hours, independent learning, assessment and lab work time. In the second semester students will undertake 3-core modules.

Learning Outcomes

By completing the course, the successful student will be able to:
