On successful completion of this course, and depending on your final grade, you may progress to year 2 of BSc (Hons) Computing Science or BEng (Hons) Software Engineering at Ulster University. You may also progress to year 2 of the BSc (Hons) Computing Systems (part-time).
In all of these cases, as you have passed your work-based learning module, you will be exempt from the placement year. You can therefore complete an Honours Degree in the same time period as a student enrolled directly on the degree at Ulster University. Alternatively, you will have the opportunity to go straight into employment.
Note: It is the responsibility of the applicant to check each University’s admission and progression requirements before enrolling on a course at the College.
