The course will appeal to those applicants who are interested in a technology-based computing course, but who wish to combine that with study of relevant aspects of business. Our focus on business process picks out the area of business where the greatest use of IT is found. The course emphasises the importance of personal development and group working, as modern IT requires good 'people skills' and is strongly team-based.
This course forms part of the Computing Framework of courses, allowing you to change your choice of course within the Framework to best suit your needs.
The richness of careers in the IT industry means that students are not always clear about which area they wish to specialise in before they join us. Some do not decide until they reach the final year. With this in mind, we have designed this Framework to have a common first year and a second year which is largely common. This design gives you exposure to a variety of modern technologies and techniques, before you make your final decision. The first two years cover those areas we know to be foundational for all professionals in this field, in addition year two enables a measure of specialism. In the final year, you have the opportunity to specialise further or to keep your education broader and more general.

Universities in the United Kingdom use a centralized system of undergraduate application: University and College Admissions Service (UCAS). It is used by both domestic and international students. Students have to register on the UCAS website before applying to the university. They will find all the necessary information about the application process on this website. Some graduate courses also require registration on this website, but in most cases students have to apply directly to the university. Some universities also accept undergraduate application through Common App (the information about it could be found on universities' websites).
Both undergraduate and graduate students may receive three types of responses from the university. The first one, “unconditional offer” means that you already reached all requirements and may be admitted to the university. The second one, “conditional offer” makes your admission possible if you fulfill some criteria – for example, have good grades on final exams. The third one, “unsuccessful application” means that you, unfortunately, could not be admitted to the university of you choice.
All universities require personal statement, which should include the reasons to study in the UK and the information about personal and professional goals of the student and a transcript, which includes grades received in high school or in the previous university.
