The Mixed-Reality Laboratory

Postgraduates without sufficient training in computer science at 1st-degree level may be required to attend appropriate taught modules; the school also offers new route PhD and MRes qualifications for postgraduates who do not have the background for direct entry to an MPhil or PhD; research is grounded in a user-centred approach, which builds on a deep technical expertise in interaction and distributed systems design to rapidly prototype new interactive technologies, and employ multiple evaluation techniques, ranging from ethnographic studies to simulator experiments, to understand how these are experienced by people in the real world; research is therefore highly interdisciplinary, striving to integrate perspectives from computer science, sociology, psychology, and art and design.

Entry requirements

Upper 2nd Class degree in relevant subject; appropriate English language qualifications where relevant.


Qualification Study mode Fee Course duration
