New Year, new challenge with a postgraduate computing degree

The University will hold a Postgraduate Open Day from 10am-2pm on Saturday 2 February. Anyone interested in gaining a postgraduate degree to launch or further their career in computing is welcome to attend.

The Canterbury campus event will cover the School of Computing’s extensive range of full- and part-time programmes including the Conversion Master’s which requires a good degree in any subject but no prior knowledge of computing, and is ideal for those looking for a career change.

Prospective students will have an opportunity to learn about the competitive fees and funding schemes available to them, including the University’s £8.5m postgraduate scholarship fund.

Dr David Barnes, taught postgraduate admissions officer for the School of Computing said: “All our taught Master’s programmes are available with an optional industrial placement. Graduating with a well respected Master’s and practical experience on your CV can really give you the edge over other candidates in the competitive computer science industry.”

Visitors will be able to tour the campus and the dedicated accommodation and study facilities in Woolf College. Academic staff will be available to discuss the wide range of courses on offer and admissions staff will be on hand to help with questions about applications and funding.

For those who can’t make this event there is also have a general Open Day on Saturday 6 July between 9am and 3pm or prospective students are welcome to visit at a time to suit them.
