Masters programmes have two semesters of taught modules and one semester dedicated to the dissertation. These are supported by a range of resources including notes, links, discussions and podcasts.
The autumn and spring semesters offer a number of compulsory and optional modules.You will receive feedback at regular intervals during modules to help with your learning. You will also receive full details of your performance with additional feedback from your programme director at the end of the autumn and spring semesters. Further details can be found in the programme handbook.
The dissertation accounts for one third of the masters degree. Work starts on the dissertation at the end of the autumn, and the majority of the work will be undertaken during the summer.
If you need help with a particular module, please contact the lecturer. For any other academic matters, please contact your programme director. For general enquiries please contact one of our dedicated teaching support officers. If you want advice from fellow students, contact one of the student representatives who will be able to pass on your comments to the Director of Studies.
The Department's industrial partners offer a number of prizes to our postgraduate students which currently cover three MSc programmes: Security Technologies and Applications, Information Systems and Internet Computing. The complete list of all prizes can be found here.
