    Course Summary

    The University of York’s MSc degree in Computer Science gives students the chance to enter a very exciting field as experts, after having studied with researchers who are at the cutting edge of a rapidly evolving technology.

    The sheer pace of change in this field is the core factor considered by its architects. You’ll gain a wide range of advanced skills in several areas, as well as the ability to build true expertise by working at the forefront of applied computer science.

    Building on your undergraduate education in computer science or a closely related field, you will become part of a dedicated research group working on your own individual project as well as group goals.

    If you are changing direction after starting in another career area, you will possess valuable work experience and professional awareness. 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.

    Course Outline

    This is a one year, full time course culminating in a Master’s of Science in Computer Science degree. There are relatively few ‘core’ modules, as you are assumed to have a computer science background already. All of the optional modules are taught by staff who are active researchers in that module’s area. The exact nature of the modules necessarily depends on the state of the art when you begin the program.

    The modules taught are also chosen to appeal to the industrial and corporate organisations who hire CS graduates. The University of York’s Industrial Advisory Board works to ensure that your education is relevant to the needs of employers, not merely at the bleeding edge of technology and science.

    You will choose 90 credits worth of modules from the electives list, as well as the 10 credit Professional and Research Skills module. Your individual research project will account for the remaining 80 credits of the course. It will include a dissertation – a 14 page paper and a seminar written for the benefit of a non-technical audience.

    Learning & Teaching

    This program is taught by leaders in their fields, top level researchers with years of industrial and/or academic experience. Every module will include a combination of practical laboratory work, problem classes and lectures. Your research project will be the single most important aspect of your work, and you will have the full support of the teaching staff in selecting a topic and delivering the project.

    Career Possiblities

    Computer Science graduates find themselves excelling in a wide range of careers after they graduate. Their skills are in demand in many different industries and sectors of the business and financial worlds, and much will depend on your chosen specialty.

    York Computer Science MSc graduates have found themselves taking roles as Doctoral Researchers, Systems Architects, App Developers, Information Analysts, Software or Systems Engineers, or even Business Analysts.

    Entry Credit

    Entry Requirements for UK and EU-nationals

    The University of York’s Advanced Computer Science program requires you to have achieved a second class honours degree or better at the undergraduate level. This degree should be in Computer Science or a related discipline such as Software Engineering.

    Entry Requirements for overseas (non-EU) students

    International students must be fluent in written and spoken English. This can be demonstrated by an IELTS score of 6.5 or better overall, and with no component scoring less than 6.0.

    International Students must also have achieved an equivalent undergraduate qualification to that listed above.
