It is expected that you will hold a bachelors degree (or equivalent) in computing or a related discipline, or alternatively have at least three years relevant industry experience.
Your spoken and written English must be of an adequate standard for postgraduate study. If English is not your first language, we recommend that you will need a minimum overall score of 6 and minimum score of 5.5 in each of the four components: reading, writing, speaking and listening under the International English Language Testing System (IELTS). Please see the IELTS website for details.
If you have any doubt about the suitability of the module, please speak to an adviser.
Outside the UK
Although the laws referred to in the module are those of England and Wales, the module also helps you develop the skills to find relevant laws both in the UK and other jurisdictions. We use specific exercises to ensure that you are exposed to cross-jurisdictional legal issues and can find relevant local laws and regulations. All of the other teaching is relevant worldwide.
You would benefit from some experience of using:
- more than one operating system – Linux in particular
- programs with a command line interface
- a virtual machine through software such as Oracle VirtualBox or VMware.
