Study Pattern: Computing and Information Technologies University Advanced Diploma (online)

On this page, you will find the study pattern for our University Advanced Diploma in Computing and Information Technologies online programme.

These study patterns highlight the modules that you will need study over the next 12 months. Please note that all students are required to re-enrol at the start of every academic year in September and so within your enrolment you can only choose modules for the current academic year.  

The scheduled modules for the remainder of your programme (outlined below) are based on the current plan, however, the order of these may be subject to change. Should any changes be made, we will communicate this to you as soon as possible.   

If you have any queries, please contact the Enrolment team on +44 (0)1332 594000 (option 4) or email
