Information Systems (Integrated) MSc




What will I learn?


This two-year full-time MSc Information Systems course aims to give you a full understanding of how information systems (IS) are designed, constructed and integrated within organisations. Your studies will take into account the large, varied and distributed nature of IS today, with multiple devices in different locations being used to access systems.

This course is designed for students with a higher national diploma (HND) or equivalent in computing who want to gain a Masters degree in this field. It is an integrated course, combining studies for the final year of an Honours degree with those for a Masters degree. As a result, this is a challenging and engaging course to take.

Throughout your studies, you will benefit from our highly supportive culture and extensive industry experience, as well as high-quality computing resources.
