After completing a Bachelor's degree in another subject
If you have completed a Bachelor's degree in another subject then the Diploma for Graduates (DipGrad) in Computer Science is an “accelerated” version of our Bachelor's degree.
After completing a Bachelor's degree in Computer Science
After completing a Bachelor's degree in Computer Science (e.g. BSc) there are several options for postgraduate study. These include Honours (e.g. BSc Hons), a Postgraduate Diploma in Science (PGDipSci), Master of Science (MSc) or Master of Applied Science (MAppSc).
The postgraduate options involve at least one year of 400-level coursework, along with projects in various forms. Admission to Honours requires five 300-level courses with a B+ average. Admission to PGDipSci (and progression to MSc) requires at least a B average.

Master of Science (MSc)
This is a two-year programme – Postgraduate Diploma in Science (PGDipSci) followed by a research thesis year. It has a strong research focus, and is the usual pathway to PhD study.
Master of Applied Science (MAppSc)
This is an 18-month programme with more taught material. This has an applied focus and is suitable for those planning to work in the IT sector.
Master of Applied Science in Artificial Intelligence (MAppSc AI)
This is an 18-month programme also based on taught material. This has a focus on artificial intelligence and is suitable for those with less formal background in computer science.
Applications for PhD
Our PhD programme attracts outstanding students from all over the world. Typically you will work on a topic related to the department's current research interests.
You will be asked to supply various documents:
- Your CV, including names of 2 referees, one of whom should be your Masters supervisor.
- A research proposal (statement of your research interests / goals).
- Formal academic transcripts of your previous degrees (including grades).
- Evidence of research ability, e.g. a copy of your best publication (with publication details) or Masters thesis.
Please note: We receive a very large number of applications, and have the capacity to accept only a small percentage of them.
