Overview

If you have a computing or information technology- based qualification that’s the equivalent to the Second Year BSc degree, you can join the Final Year of either of these two BSc courses. Our online computer science and information technology courses are very similar to our campus-based degrees, and the academic standards required are just as high. However, they give you the flexibility to study from wherever you like and to fit learning around other commitments. Computer Science gives you a broad range of skills and knowledge in areas including programming, multimedia, networks, databases, operating systems and software engineering. Information technology includes many aspects of computer science, but with more focus on the needs of people and organisations.

Why choose this Information Technology (Top-up) (Hons) (Online) programme from University of Hertfordshire?

  • You can study when and where you want, fitting in with your other commitments such as work or family
  • Study at a highly-regarded, well established computer science department with excellent facilities, strong links to both business and research, and a track record of graduate success.
  • BSc (Hons) Computer Science also available to study online. 

Careers

Our graduates have gone on to become software developers, business analysts, database administrators, network designers, technical consultants, programmers, web developers, project managers and software engineers.
