Where courses have specific subject requirements, an ‘A’ or ‘B’ grade would normally be required in line with UK A Level requirements. Where courses have specific subject requirements, students will need to achieve a4or higher in at least two 140-hour courses. Where courses have specific subject requirements, a score between 87% and 95% will normally be requested in state exams in these subjects. Where courses have specific subject requirements, we would expect these to be studied as a 5-unit subject and look for achievement between80%and95%. For students taking theHungarian Matura (Érettségi Bizonyítvány), we typically require an average ranging from70%to83% from best 5 subjects which must include at least 2 higher level exams. Typical offers range from 80% – 93% overall in the Diplome d’Etudes Collegiales with specific subject marks of 80% – 96% required for some courses.

  • The ideas involved are important not only from the point of view of modelling real electronic circuits but also because many complicated processes in biology, medicine and mechanical engineering are themselves modelled by electric circuits.
  • We accept Sports, Exercise and Health Science as a science subject for this course.
  • After your first year, the emphasis on independent learning becomes greater, for example you may do a final year project in the final year.
  • We understand that your staff are busy so we will work in partnership with you to plan the process in order to keep disruption to a minimum.
  • The Computing Project provides the opportunity to undertake a major computing related problem in an approved topic area relevant to the programme of study.

By learning how programs are mapped onto the system and executed, readers will better understand why programs behave the way they do and how inefficiencies arise. Computer systems are viewed broadly, comprising processor and memory hardware, compiler, operating system, and networking environment. With its programmer’s perspective, readers can clearly see how learning about the inner workings of computer systems will help their further development as computer scientists and engineers.

The Snowdon Masters Scholarships have been designed to identify and accelerate talented disabled individuals through higher education. Applicant has requested a deferral – in this situation, if a deferral is granted, the University will retain the deposit and credit it against the applicant’s account for securing their place for the following year of entry. Please note that some highly competitive programmes do not allow applicants to defer. You will be taught jointly by the Schools of Engineering and Computing Science. You will benefit from their combined resources and expertise and from an industry-focused curriculum. Due to unprecedented demand, applications for the September 2022 intake are now closed.

What you’ll study

For more details on course structure and modules, and how you will be taught and assessed, see the programme specification. Fees for international students may increase year-on-year in line with the rate of inflation. The policy at Royal Holloway is that any increases in fees will not exceed 5% for continuing students. There are a number of optional course modules available during your degree studies. The following is a selection of optional course modules that are likely to be available.

Computers Systems

Although this technological area can be perceived as being broad, the focus will mainly be on Fuzzy Systems and on interesting synergies such as those between Fuzzy Systems and Artificial Neural Networks , including the Neuro-Fuzzy architecture. This unit is also timely indeed, since knowledge transfer from human to machine and from machine to human and knowledge extraction from data are seen particularly, as vital components for a successful economy, healthy well-being, and clean environment. Finally, the module strikes the too-often difficult balance between theoretical foundations and examples of applications via weekly interactive lectures, laboratory experiments, video demonstrations, and problem solving. This unit covers methods to represent, analyse and design mechanical, electrical and computational systems and their integration into mechatronics systems. This module will enable students to design, analyse, develop and integrate mechatronic systems.

Computing, communication & information systems

The aim of this module is to provide theoretical and practical knowledge of electronic components and their use in circuits. The scholarship will meet the cost of tuition fees for the duration of your programme, for those applicants who are unable to cover full tuition fees through access to public funds by applying to SAAS or Student Finance. The Sanctuary Scholarship also provides a £5,000 per year stipend, to assist with study costs. In addition, if the eligibility criteria for university accommodation is met, this will also be provided for the duration of your degree, if required.

Independent learning

Where courses have specific subject requirements, these should be studied at Level 3 within the NCEA. Typically, an overall achievement of Merit or Excellence will be required in these subjects. For students taking theNational Certificate in Educational Achievement Level 3typical offers will be based on overall achievement in theNCEAplus a required number of credits achieved at the next level up. For example, where A Level requirements are ABB, we would normally require aMeritoverall with20 Level 3 creditsachieved atExcellence. Where courses have specific subject requirements, a score ofBorAwill normally be required in an Advanced Level subject.
