    In a world where information technology plays a vital role in business operations, companies are looking for adaptable professionals who understand organisations as much as the systems they use.

    Information technology (IT) is critical to the success of organisations from government and public sector agencies to big multinational companies. At Southampton our academics have pioneered many of the most important advances in computer science and web technology of the past 10 years.

    Our distinctive BSc Information Technology in Organisations programme will provide you with a unique perspective and prepare you for a career as a flexible IT professional.

    Our teaching places a strong emphasis on discussion, analysis, and reflection on technical practice, and uses a variety of teaching methods, including team-building and management-related activities.

    This three-year programme uses our outstanding computing facilities to give you a good grounding in the fundamental issues of IT in organisations. Key areas of study include:

    • development of IT systems
    • the security of IT systems
    • the effects of IT on society
    • e-business and e-commerce

    Graduates will be able to use their skills in any sector in which IT plays an important part, from finance to leisure and entertainment. 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.

    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.
