Admission Criteria

The Master of Computing – General Track (MComp) as a new programme suitable for candidates with non-computing degrees. The value of computing expertise in the workforce has increased sharply in recent years, fuelling enthusiasm and interest in the field among candidates across all sectors and backgrounds. However, there were few avenues to pursue a postgraduate degree in computing for many individuals without having a related degree. The MComp General Track is designed to provide opportunities for these candidates to enhance their computing knowledge and reposition themselves in their respective industries as competent IT professionals.

There are two admission pathways: direct admission for full-time programme and stackable route for part-time admission.

Candidates applying for part-time admission through the stackable route are expected to have initially been enrolled in the Graduate Certificate in Computing Foundations which can subsequently be upgraded to the Master of Computing – General Track. For more details on the Graduate Certificate in Computing Foundations, click here.

To be admitted into the programme, candidates should either possess a good honours degree or equivalent in any discipline, or have completed the Graduate Certificate in Computing Foundations with a CAP of 3.0 or above to qualify for this route of admission.

The above admission requirements are the minimum requirements. Admission is on a competitive basis and preference will be given to students with IT related job experiences.
