The postgraduate programme in computer science provides qualifications at these levels:
Honours is a possible next step after completing a Bachelor's degree for students who are well-prepared, academically able, and ambitious.
The Postgraduate Diploma is the usual next step after a Bachelor's degree.
The Master's degree has one year and two year versions. After completing a PGDip or an Honours degree, one can proceed to a (one year) Master's by thesis only. Alternatively, with good 300-level grades one may apply to enter the (two year) Master's by coursework and thesis. The first (coursework) year of Master's study is identical to the PGDip.
For admission to a Doctoral degree, it would normally be expected that you have earned a Master's degree in computer science. However, an excellent Honours degree, because it includes a substantial research project, may be considered grounds for accelerated entry to PhD study.
There is usually a meeting for those doing COSC480/COSC490 at 11:30 on the Friday before the semester begins. This is held in Owheo, room G34.
