New Year, new challenge with a postgraduate computing degree

School of Computing logo

The University is holding two Postgraduate Open Days for people interested in pursuing further study. The Canterbury Open Day runs from 10am-2pm on Saturday 1 February and the Medway event from 5pm-7pm on Wednesday 5th 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. The Medway event sees the launch of the new Digital Enterprise and Information Systems MSc at the campus.

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 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 are also general Open Days on Saturday 21 June at the Medway campus and Saturday 12 July at the Canterbury campus, or prospective students are welcome to visit at a time to suit them.
