If you do not have the right subjects or grades to enrol directly onto our BSc (Hons) Information Communication Technology degree, this foundation course offers an alternative route into degree study with an additional foundation year. This extra introductory year will give you the grounding you need to begin degree-level study. The foundation year focuses on the study of computing and mathematics in order to provide a good numerical background that will support you throughout the remainder of the degree. Information communication technology (ICT) continues to play a crucial part in effective computer systems that can meet increasing user demands. We live in a world dominated by online services and social interactions, so the ICT systems behind them must be responsive, reliable and secure. This practical ICT course covers the development and use of ICT systems in business and industry, and focuses on core business technologies.
