Computer Science

The benefits of a Masters extend beyond improving your earning potential. They can provide you with personal and professional skills to accelerate your development. They are also an opportunity to differentiate yourself from your peers, many of whom will have similar A-level and undergraduate qualifications.

The foundations of computer science actually date back to before the modern computer had actually been created. For instance, algorithms for computing have been around for hundreds of years. One book of Sanskrit algorithms dates back to 800 BC.
