Specialist areas, changing and registering courses, lecture and examination timetables and past exam papers.
The full-time MSc programmes in Artificial Intelligence, Cognitive Science, Computer Science, Data Science, and Informatics are split into two elements: two semesters of lecture-based teaching including the compulsory Informatics Research Review (IRR) and Informatics Project Proposal (IPP), followed by a major individual project in a chosen specialist area. Together, these span a full twelve month period. The lectures are followed by examinations in December and/or April/May. Thereafter, students pursue their project work and write a dissertation on the project, submitted in August.
Part time students do half of their lecture-based courses and IRR in their first year, and the other half of their courses and IPP in their second year. Three-year students do their project on a part-time basis according to a schedule agreed with their supervisor. Two-year students complete their project on a full-time basis in the Summer after their second-year exams. If you wish to change between the two and three year options, please discuss in good time with your Personal Tutor.
