    Course Summary

    A BSc in Computer Networking from the University of the West of Scotland will not only give you an all-around understanding of computer science and IT, it will prepare you to take up a specialist career in digital networking or IT infrastructure. You’ll be able to specialise further, in Cybersecurity, Wireless Networks, or a range of others that varies from year to year.

    This course is accredited by the British Computer Society, the UK’s professional body for computer science and IT. As a result, you can select modules which provide important exemptions from testing into full membership with the BCS. Though you’ll still have to have to study to achieve full status, the requirements are much less onerous and much more convenient when you have these exemptions. You’ll also qualify for CCNA (Cisco Certified Networking Associate) certification upon successful completion of the program.  These distinctions should greatly improve your employability.

Many employers actively seek candidates with these benefits. Our network of contacts, a dedicated employability service and a reputation in the legal profession mean we also have an outstanding track-record of finding students legal employment.Many employers favour GDL students in an increasingly competitive legal job market. Through studying another degree subject, you will have gained many transferable skills. By taking the conversion route into law, you are showing motivation and determination by choosing law at a later stage than some others. This looks good to employers.
