Course summary

The University of Greenwich has a long-standing relationship with the British Computer Society (BCS), which accredits our computing degree programmes. As this programme was extensively updated in 2019, it has a current designation of Initial Full Chartered Information Technology Professional (CITP) accreditation for the 2019 intake. The accreditation status is expected to be confirmed in autumn 2022 after the first cohort of students graduate. Students will be kept updated on the status of this, in the very unlikely event that this does not progress as expected the university will support students with individual BCS membership applications at the point of graduation. Our computing degree covers essential theory and practice but also provides the option to specialise in network or information systems if it suits your future career plans. This computing degree covers subjects such as hardware and software types, digital media and business-oriented computing. Our flexible course allows you to take a specialist pathway in network systems or information systems and shape your study to match your career plans. You'll be in an excellent position to advance into more specialised fields with this solid background in computing. Popular career options for our computing graduates include software development, IT support and consultancy. What you should know about this course
