Course summary


If you’re looking for a career change or simply have an interest in web and software development, our MSc Web Development will open a pathway into the IT industry, as it requires no previous undergraduate experience in the field of computing.

This is a blended degree that brings elements of computing and digital media into one single package, ensuring that you are taught the technical skills of software development and delivery, as well as design elements of digital media. You will also take part in our summer work placement module, which means you can gain valuable work experience relevant to your career aspirations.

Over the year, you will study software development through a comprehensive introduction to programming with Python, before moving onto full-stack development with JavaScript, meaning that you will become an accomplished programmer and meet the requirements needed to join the web development industry. To compliment this, you will also study basic and advanced web design to ensure you graduate a well-rounded developer with a flair for digital media.

Additionally, you will be taught how to store and retrieve data, as well as learning about the security aspects of IT. By completing our Cybersecurity module, you can become a Certified Ethical Hacker through the EC-Council.

To finish your programme, you will undertake an end of year project based on your own interests in the field which is designed to meet professional requirements.

Our MSc Web Development course follows an active blended learning style, with some lectures replaced by workshops and seminars. This means that you will be in a learning environment focused on collaborative learning in the lab spaces in our state-of-the-art media centre, the Sir David Bell Building, and be immersed in an environment that you’ll experience in the IT industry.

You will graduate with an ability to work at the intersection between computing and digital media, and have the skills required in both fields to become an accomplished web or software developer.

Career Options

Employability in computing programmes is embedded throughout the curriculum, with a focus on project-based assessments that simulate real-life scenarios. This is especially demonstrated in the collaborative nature of the teaching, the team working elements, and the MSc Project, meaning that you will be well prepared to enter the software development or web/mobile design industries.

Our careers team is available to support you from the start of your studies until after you graduate. They will help you build your CV, prepare for interview, and meet and learn from successful graduates working at the top of their careers. You will have lots of opportunity to work with our partners across London and beyond and attend a Roehampton jobs fair where you can find out about opportunities and meet employers. You will also gain PGCert and PGDip awards in this course.
