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. You’ll work with a supervisor who has specialist knowledge of their field to choose and pursue a theme that suits your interests and career goals. It’ll give you the chance to problem-solve, just like you would in a place of work. All supervisory sessions will be held online during the 2020/21 academic year and you will not be required to attend face to face meetings.
The demand for IT specialists is rising, so a top-up business information systems course could be exactly what you need to succeed in your chosen career.
