Overview

The Advanced Computer Science with a Year in Industry programme from University of Liverpool is intended for graduates who already have a first degree in Computer Science or a closely related subject, and who wish to extend the knowledge gained in their undergraduate study with more advanced specialised material reflecting current research at the “cutting-edge” of the discipline. 

Accredited by the British Computer Society, The Chartered Institute for IT for the purposes of partially meeting the academic requirement for registration as a Chartered IT Professional.

The two-year MSc programme shares the same taught modules with its one-year equivalent.

The placement is typically 30 weeks from September to June.
