At a time when there's increasing emphasis on computer science in schools, and huge growth in digital technology in education, the economy and society, our course will give you expertise in this important area. It's excellent preparation if you want to work in education or pursue teacher training.
Computer science has reached the top of the educational agenda. The argument has been made for making computational thinking central to schooling and the technology is now there to do it, with children actively using ICT from a young age. With our ability to upload educational material to the internet at any point, it’s vital for the education sector to keep abreast of technological developments – and potential pitfalls.
Whether you’re interested or working at primary or secondary-school level, our course is for you. With support from our friendly and experienced staff, you’ll develop an in-depth knowledge of education, technology and computing that you can put to use in your future career. From programming to safeguarding, you’ll understand the benefits (and issues) that result from digital technology being at the heart of young people's schooling.
When you graduate you’ll be able to thrive in a world of continual technological change, and address an educational need that's recognised both nationally and internationally.
Our course will put you on the path to a number of careers. With further professional training or postgraduate study, you could consider teaching, or working with and supporting vulnerable children, young people and adults.
Other options include teaching and learning assistants, careers related to using computers and computational thinking with others, and delving into becoming an academic, researcher or scholar.
You’ll be assessed in a number of ways, all designed to enhance your learning. As well as traditional essays and a Major Project, you’ll also demonstrate your use of ICT through web-based communication and the creation of a personalised and shared online learning space.
Other forms of assessment on our course include a presentation, coursework and a written exam.

Your enthusiasm. Our passion. Your best foot forward.
The part-time course fee assumes that you’re studying at half the rate of a full time student (50% intensity). Course fees will be different if you study over a longer period. All fees are for guidance purposes only.
You can pay your fees in the following ways.
Most English undergraduates take out a tuition fee loan with Student Finance England. The fees are then paid directly to us. The amount you repay each month is linked to your salary and repayments start in April after you graduate.
If you choose not to take out a loan you can pay your fees directly to us. There are two ways to do this: either pay in full, or through a three- or six-month instalment plan starting at registration.
We offer most new undergraduate students funding to support their studies and university life. There’s also finance available for specific groups of students.
