Find out more about the TEF.

Computer scientists draw on logical and analytical thinking, creativity, design and programming skills to find innovative solutions. Our programme will give you practical skills in software development and interface design, underpinned by a strong grasp of the fundamental principles of IT. We cover programming, software engineering, computer and network design and the theory of computing, as well as multimedia, usability and interaction. You’ll gain practical experience of building computer systems in progressively more demanding contexts, and develop a deep understanding of how to solve problems using modelling and abstraction techniques. With a flexible curriculum, you’re encouraged to pursue your own interests. In the final year, you’ll design an individual project based on your own interests and linked to research areas in the School, such as security, big data, computer gaming, interaction design, machine learning, pervasive computing, theoretical computer science, social network analysis or digital audio.

Pearson BTEC Level 3 National Extended Diploma (first teaching from September 2016) Queen Mary University of London welcomes applications from students currently studying Level 3 BTEC qualifications and will consider you for entry to the majority of our undergraduate courses. The typical entry requirements will vary according to the course you are applying for.

Some of our courses require specific subject knowledge which you may not be able to cover as part of a Level 3 BTEC qualification and we may therefore require additional Level 3 qualifications to ensure that you are suitably prepared for relevant courses. A small number of our courses do not accept BTEC qualifications for entry, either as a standalone qualification, or in combination with other qualifications at Level 3.

Information on our typical entry requirements and guidance for applying can be found at http://www.qmul.ac.uk/undergraduate/entry/btec/

If you are at all unsure about the acceptability of your BTEC qualification for entry, please contact the Admissions team for individual advice (admissions@qmul.ac.uk).
