Welcome Taught Postgraduates

The CSIS Department offers six taught postgraduate courses in a variety of areas. The department has particular strengths in digital media, software localisation and software engineering. In full-time mode the Graduate Diploma in Computing runs over an academic year while the other taught programmes take a full calendar year. The vast majority of these programmes have attracted substantial funding under the Postgraduate Skills Initiative which results in reduced fees for EU-students.

Welcome Research Postgraduates

The CSIS Department offers postgraduate research programmes leading to the award of MSc and PhD in areas such as Software Engineering, Computational Linguistics, Computational Musicology and Computer Music, Human-Centred Computing, Software Localisation, Bio-Computing, Robotics, and Visualisation and Graph Drawing.
There are several internal and external opportunties for funding/scholarships for suitably qualified candidates.

Welcome International Postgraduates

The CSIS Department welcomes applications from non-EU students (called International Students) for any of our six taught postgraduate courses or our research postgraduate opportunties. For taught programmes please apply via the International Education Division. If you are seeking to undertake a research degree, you should apply through the Graduate School.
