Course Outlines

Taught Modules
  • Further Object Oriented Development
  • Databases
  • Computer Network Protocols and Architectures
  • Project: Computer Science Project

Note on the project

The project is a substantial piece of practical work. It typically involves some programming plus many other aspects of computer science, information systems, or software development. You will be allocated a project tutor who will work with you individually, helping and guiding you through the entire project.

Your project enables you to extend and deepen your knowledge of computer science and to apply it in a particular context. You plan and manage the work yourself, with guidance from your project tutor and with the support of course material on key project issues. You will need to report regularly on your progress and to produce a final report at the end.

Module Synopsis

Computer Network Protocols and Architectures

This module gives you an opportunity to reappraise the fundamental principles of computer networks and to explore their internal architectures. You will study the ways in which they can be used and how network applications may be constructed.


This module provides you with the principles and techniques needed to develop relational database systems and give you solid practical experience in so doing. There is also an introduction to new and emerging trends in the field, e.g. object-relational databases, data warehouses, grid computing.

Further Object-Oriented Development

This module develops your understanding of object oriented technology in the analysis, design and implementation of software systems. It explores how concepts such as abstraction, encapsulation and inheritance can improve software quality and how standard architectures support the reuse of software components and distribution across multiple hosts. You will gain practical experience of a range of techniques and use a variety of industry-standard tools.


The Project gives you the opportunity to extend and deepen your knowledge of Computer Science and to apply it in a new context. The project should be chosen to fit in with your programme of study, prior experience and personal objectives. On completion, normally you would deliver a substantial piece of practical work and an accompanying project report.

Method of Delivery

Tutored e-Learning.

This is conducted as tutored e-learning course. The university works very closely with us, the support partner in Singapore for this programme. You will be using studynet, the university’s state-of-the art virtual learning environment, to access all the course materials, to receive and submit all the assignments and to communicate with staff and other students. We take care of the local arrangements such as tutorial support and other additional services to support this programme.

Award Criteria

Students have to pass in all the 4 modules to be awarded with the degree.
Students must satisfy the minimum attendance requirements (75% for local students and 90% for international students) for the award of Certificate of Attendance (COA) in all the modules.

Grading System

Each module is assessed for 100%. Assessment is based on coursework. The degree classification is calculated as below:
  • First class Honours – 70% to 100%
  • Upper second class Honours – 60% to 69%
  • Lower second class Honours – 50% to 59%
  • Third class Honours – 40% to 49%

Assessment Information

All the modules (except Project module) are assessed based on coursework by the university. At the end of Project module a project report is submitted together with the softcopy of the project for assessment. Assessments are conducted in January, May and September of every year.
