Overview

The language component of this programme will be taught in common with existing language provision in the institute but course materials and language activities are mapped against the core content subject areas to ensure that learners in the Computing with Language group retain their own identity.

 Students study the general language and communication skills for the first two academic years. Fluency and competence in the language really comes with the period spent abroad. For those with the interest and strength in the language a full year abroad at the end of year two is a possible. Students taking a full year abroad will need to progress their studies in the partner institution along similar technical topics to those covered in Semester 5.  For those who are less confident in their language semester 5 will have additional preparation outside of normal classes to help prepare students for the period abroad.

 The Computing with Language programme is a response to the growing demand for graduates with both IT and language skills in the ICT sector where employment and activity has grown substantially and remains vibrant. Language skills and recruitment requirements point to a high demand for graduates with a minimum of two languages (English plus one).
