We welcome applications from students over 21. We may waive formal entry requirements especially for mature applicants over the age of 21 and make our own assessment of your skills and knowledge and so we encourage you to apply. If you have no previous formal qualifications you will need to complete an admission test including English comprehension and mathematical knowledge (a sample maths test).
Applicants from partner institutions within the Institutional Partnership Agreement are guaranteed an offer of a place on the course they apply for at the grades set out above or lower in accordance with the principles of the IPA.
Students may enter the programme at Year 3 if you have successfully completed Birkbeck's Foundation Degree in Information Technology, or you provide documentary evidence of completing an equivalent programme at HND level or above at another institution (this should include web technologies, software development and 'hands on' computer programming).
English language requirements for non-native speakers should normally be equivalent to IELTS 6.5.
