Course summary

This MSci course will give you a masters-level qualification in a degree specialised in artificial intelligence. Your fourth year will consist of a major research project in any area of artificial intelligence you choose. This course will focus on advanced areas of artificial intelligence giving you expert knowledge in this field. You will explore topics such as user experience design, autonomous systems and machine learning. This tailored programme will give you key skills and knowledge to help start a career in an increasingly innovative industry. You'll also study the fundamental areas of computer science. Our teaching and modules are linked to our own specialised research groups, giving you a wide range of optional modules to choose from. This also means you will be taught by experts in their field who use their own active research to support their teaching. You may recognise some of our tutors from the Computerphile YouTube series. To help support our students, we offer an Excellence in Computer Science scholarship which ranges from 10-50% off your tuition fees. This course is accredited by the British Computer Society. You will have the flexibility to transfer between computer science courses after your first year. This can include courses with an international year or a year in industry.


In the first year, you will be introduced to the fundamentals of artificial intelligence. This will give you a broad knowledge of the field, such as AI search techniques, data mining, and ethics. You will learn the foundations of computer science. This will include modules on programming languages such as C, Java and Haskell. In your second year, you will study more advanced modules in artificial intelligence. This will build on your knowledge from the first year. You'll learn about topics such as AI techniques and algorithm efficiency. Optional modules are also available for you to study topics that you are personally interested in. These include human-computer interaction or C++ programming. Year three offers a wide range of flexibility. We offer lots of optional modules so you can choose what you study and tailor your degree to your own interests. Our modules are linked to our own research groups. This means we are able to offer a wide variety of topics. In your final year, you can choose to complete a research project. This can be in any area of artificial intelligence. You will be supported by our academic staff and world-leading research groups.
