Program description

Artificial Intelligence Online MSc

In recent years Artificial Intelligence (AI) has become more closely connected to societal change and human progress, calling on new, powerful data algorithms to ensure intelligent machines work more collaboratively with us than ever before.

Our online MSc in Artificial Intelligence is designed to give professionals from computer science – and a host of other disciplines – the opportunity to specialise in AI and meet the increasing demand for experts in this exciting, challenging and rapidly growing field.

Impacting industries as diverse as finance and healthcare, AI has a broad application across a variety of business functions, including marketing and policy-making. Importantly, this online AI MSc also addresses the ethical implications of advancing machine intelligence, and related issues around transparency and accountability – elements often overlooked in the rush to stretch the boundaries of technology.

You can opt to take two specialist pathways: one focused on AI in context, with the other exploring technical aspects of AI in further depth. As a result, whether you’re seeking to fill the digital skills gap or eager to learn about the latest breakthroughs in AI, this course will challenge your thinking and give you the tools to apply your knowledge into practice.

Admission requirements

Entry Requirements:

Typically, you should have a first or second class bachelor’s honours degree or international equivalent, plus A-level Maths (or at least one passed maths unit at degree level)

International students:

Applicants must have an IELTS score of 6.5 with no less than 6.0 in any band
