**This course is accredited by CILIP** This CILIP-accredited course will prepare you for a career in the private or the public sector. It's run in partnership with the Department of Computer Science so you can specialise in either a technical computing route or an organisational and information-focused route. You'll acquire valuable transferable skills such as presentation and report writing. We can help develop your skills as an information systems leader. If you have little or no relevant work experience, the standard course is for you. If you're more experienced, you should take the Professional Enhancement Programme. Professional Enhancement Programme The Professional Enhancement Programme is designed for experienced professionals. The emphasis is on helping you re-evaluate the way you work in the context of new and emerging ideas. As an experienced professional, you'll take fewer core modules than students who are starting from scratch. This leaves you free to choose more optional modules, so you can focus on what's most relevant to you in your job. Please see our University website for the most up-to-date course information.
