The Higher Diploma in Science in Computing is a postgraduate ICT course designed for learners with either a level 7 degree in ICT, which is normally 5 years old or above, or a level 8 degree in a subject with a strong numerate, IT, or technical element such as accounting, engineering, science, digital media, etc. The programme enables learners to achieve the knowledge, skills and competencies required to earn a level 8 award in computing.
