INDUSTRY CONNECTIONS

At UA92 the Computer Science degree has been co-designed with industry giant Microsoft, computer services provider Insight, coding bootcamp Code Nation, connectivity providers TalkTalk and the Technology team at KPMG. This truly innovative approach to curriculum development means students develop the practical skills required in the tech industry as determined by the industry itself that is underpinned by learning the theoretical knowledge.  Leading experts at these organisations will provide regular guest lectures, masterclasses and mentorship, whilst also inputting into project work and providing regular time off-campus working directly in tech businesses on live projects and client briefs. 

Further partner connections are built through the Character and Personal Development modules, as students work on projects set by a range of partners and undertake placements which build on their subject discipline and give an insight into working across subject and industry boundaries.

FEES AND FINANCE

What do I need to pay for? 

×

If you decide to study away from home, your three biggest outgoings will be tuition fees, accommodation and living costs.

How much are tuition fees? 

×

The cost for UK undergraduate students at UA92 for September 2020 entry is £9,000 per academic year. 

Most students choose to take out a student loan to cover this, paid directly to the institution.

How do I apply for a student loan? 

×

You can apply online from Student Finance England, www.gov.uk/student-finance

Applying is not dependent on an offer, so you can get a headstart on the process.

When do I pay this back? 

×

Not straight away. You won’t actually start paying the loan back until you’re working and earning over £25,000 - how much you pay depends on your salary.

Is there a loan for accommodation and living costs? 

×

Yes – eligible UK students can apply for a Maintenance Loan, again through Student Finance England, up to £8,700 a year to help with the costs of living. Repayment of this works in the same way as your tuition fees – they actually combine together into one sum. 

I’m an international student, how much are my fees? 

×

£13,770 per year. You will be expected to pay a minimum of 50 percent upfront before your course begins. 

Can I get advice or support during my time at UA92? 

×

Absolutely, we will have a Support Team on campus to help you with budgeting and financial advice to ensure you manage your money whilst studying with us. In addition, and as part of our Target Talent Curriculum, you’ll learn about financial planning to manage your finances in study and throughout your working life.
