The range of jobs that graduates from this programme can apply for are growing, as AI expands outside the IT/technology department and permeates every level of the organisation from the board room to AI implementation projects. Companies are recruiting people with skills to:
A 2.1 (or above) UK Honours degree or an equivalent internationally recognised qualification in or a related or non-related subject.
In addition, applicants should have a minimum 2 years post-graduation work experience to include experience of the following: team work; leading and supporting projects; and report preparation or writing. All applicants should submit a full CV when they apply.
Applicants with a 2.2 or international equivalent will be considered on an individual basis according to the merits of each application. Please be aware that we will consider applicants who more closely meet our 2.1 degree level entry requirements in the first instance.
If you require a Tier 4 visa to study in the UK, you must prove knowledge of the English language so that we can issue you a Certificate of Acceptance for Study (CAS). To do this, you will need an IELTS for UKVI or Trinity SELT test pass gained from a test centre approved by UK Visas and Immigration (UKVI) and on the Secure English Language Testing (SELT) list. This must have been taken and passed within two years from the date the CAS is made.
You can find out more about the qualifications we accept on our English Language Requirements page.
Should you wish to take a pre-sessional English course to improve your English prior to starting your degree course, you must sit the test at an approved SELT provider for the same reason. We offer our own BrunELT English test and have pre-sessional English language courses for students who do not meet requirements or who wish to improve their English. You can find out more information on English courses and test options through our Brunel Language Centre.
