Top-up your knowledge to launch your career

This one-year course is ideal for students looking to develop knowledge in information technology and the application of IT in business. The course is a final year top-up programme to help you gain the skills to pursue a career in the field.

You’ll graduate with a range of different skills employers want. This will include business-oriented knowledge and awareness, communication, technical computing, project management, and many more. A number of career pathways will be available to you – systems designer or developer, IT project manager, and computer support. You can look forward to joining big-name organisations like KPMG, the NHS, and Citadel Insurance, to name just a few.

How you’ll practice your skills

One of the ways you’ll apply all the learned skills is by undertaking an individual project.
