Extended Degree Programme in Computing

If you complete this year successfully you progress directly onto one of our three-year degree courses. During the course, you encounter computing-based problems which you solve by acquiring up to date technical skills and working in teams with the guidance of dedicated staff. You also gain relevant mathematical and communication skills. The course is suitable if you do not yet have the qualifications for a full degree course, you feel you are not yet ready for degree-level study or you are returning to study and feel you need some help to get up to speed with the demands of learning before embarking on a degree. The teaching and learning strategy focuses very much on project-led activities using new technologies. You work on a series of projects involving solving problems in teams, using technology to build a solution, displaying or delivering your project and gaining competences as you go. You work on projects such as • mobile app programming • cyber security • arduino / raspberry pi programming • LEGO Serious Play • website development • database for business • network management and hardware configuration. You also learn how to use a project management method to work effectively in a team, how to present to an audience and you develop the maths and communication skills you need to prepare you for a degree course.
