Computing (Fundamentals of) Masters Qualifier / Ríomhaireacht (Buntosca)

Sept 2020 – Grangegorman Campus

The minimum admission requirement is an Honours Bachelors degree (level 8) in a non computer science discipline. Applicants with other qualifications and relevant experience may also be considered for entry as exceptional cases.

If English is not your first language you will need to provide evidence of your English language proficiency as detailed on our website.  Applicants for this programme should have a minimum IELTS (Academic Version) English Proficiency of 6.5 overall (or equivalent) with nothing less than 6 in each component.

The MSc in Computing Masters Qualifier will offer graduates in non computing disciplines the opportunity to acquire the core knowledge of computing concepts necessary to be eligible for entry to the MSc in Computing programme in the School of Computing. The philosophy behind the qualifier is that graduates from other disciplines will have developed significant transferable skills in analysis, communications and independent learning and so will be in a position to learn a focused subset of computing knowledge quickly.

Graduates of the Masters Qualifier exit with a Continuing Professional Development Diploma in Fundamentals of Computing and those who pass all modules and achieve an overall average mark of 60% can progress directly to the MSc in Computing programme.
