COMPUTING FOR INDUSTRY Level 6 BSc (Hons) Degree (Top-Up) Higher Level Apprenticeship

  • Level 6
  • Higher Level Apprenticeship
  • Portadown Campus
  • The Open University


The course provides students with the opportunity to apply and further expand on the knowledge gained at Level 5. Independent thinking, research skills and self-driven learning instil the professional skills required of a graduate. The modules selected will also blend in the technologies, skills, knowledge and resources required by industry.

The course supports students to develop a range of independent thinking and planning skills with the underpinning industry relevant curriculum knowledge and support to enable them to carry out a detailed research project.

The course aims to produce graduates who can apply their understanding, experience and specialist skills to the modern computing industry to be economically valuable to the Northern Ireland and UK economies and beyond.

The taught modules are delivered by experienced lecturing staff. You will normally have classes for 10 hours per week, comprising lectures, practical sessions and some blended learning. In addition, you will be expected to undertake independent study of approximately 12 hours per week.

Students are required to attend the Southern Regional College Portadown Campus during term-time, one full day per week. The remaining 4 days will be based with an employer. There is an expectation of independent study.

All staff delivering on this programme are highly experienced with an extensive skillset across all computing disciplines.

Please note this is exactly the same course as the part-time Computing for Industry BSc (Hons) Level 6 Degree (2 year Top-Up PT)- however the HLA element (1 day in College, 4 days in industry per week) ensures that no fees are applicable.
