    Software engineering drives the fundamental technologies of today’s connected world. Take the opportunity to develop the skills to create the next generation of software systems.

    Our distinctive MEng Software Engineering will build upon the BEng Software Engineering and give you the chance to learn how software engineering must adapt to deal with new technologies and challenges.

    You will further develop your skills in:

    • programming
    • software design
    • analysis
    • quality assurance
    • project management

    In your fourth year, you will take part in a group design project, working with a real industry customer or solving challenging problems through imaginative application of technology.

    Major employers worldwide are keen to employ our graduates – in system development, information technology and communications in the IT sector, and in the finance, service, communications and entertainment industries.

    We have strong relationships with employers, and our graduates are particularly in demand for their understanding of organisations and their practical abilities in the workplace. We have our own Careers Hub website and run an annual careers fair.

    UK requirements for international applications

    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.


    English Language Requirements

    IELTS band : 6.5

    To study at this university, you have to speak English. We advice you to

    take an IELTS test.


    GCSE Mathematics and English at grade C or above

    A Levels:

    A*AA (Including an A in Mathematics, or equivalent international qualification)

    General Studies and Critical Thinking are not accepted as one of the three A levels

    English Language Requirements:

    If English is not your first language, you will be required to pass an approved English test. We normally ask for a score of IELTS 6.5 with at least 5.5 in each competency.

    Alternative Qualifications:

    We welcome applications from candidates offering qualifications other than A and AS levels (including BTEC Higher National Diploma, European Baccalaureate, International Baccalaureate, Irish Leaving Certificate and Scottish Highers). You will be expected to attain an equivalent standard (or higher) to an A level applicant.

    International Qualifications:

    We welcome applications from international students.

    Mature Applicants:

    We welcome applications from mature students. If you will be over 21 at the start of your proposed degree programme, you are may be eligible for exemption from our normal entry requirements. However, you will be required to provide evidence of having completed recent study (eg Access, Return to Study, Open University foundation courses) and of your capacity to pursue the course.

    Work Experience

    No work experience is required.
