The programme leads to a wide range of careers in the IT industry; in many cases students seek employment at the interface of the IT domain and the subject matter of their first degree. Computer Science at the University of Liverpool is research-driven and internationally renowned for its cutting-edge work. Our lecturers are international leaders in their research specialities, coming first in the UK for research excellence at 3* and 4* (REF 2014).

The programme is organised as two taught semesters followed by an individual project undertaken over the summer. During each semester MSc students study a number of modules adding up to 60 credits per semester (120 in total).
