Computer Science Top-up degree enables students with a Level 5 (or equivalent) computing related qualification (e.g. HND, Foundation degree) to acquire further knowledge and skills in the field of computer science through engaging with key principles and theories. You will develop practical skills across the broad range of topics within the subject, applying these in creation of tools and systems to solve real world problems.Students on this computing top-up degree will benefit from our excellent links to the computing industry (e.g., Barclaycard, GE) and other organisations such as BCS, IEEE, CISCO Network Academy, etc. We are confident that our students, upon successful completion of this programme, will be able to find a graduate level job; otherwise our Northampton Employment Promise will secure a three–six month paid internship for them to get back on track. Students will have the opportunity to attend seminars/workshops/conferences with guest speakers and presenters from the local, national, and international industry. This is a great opportunity for the students to meet and work with colleagues from different year groups but also with professionals with several years in the industry.
