The Postgraduate Diploma in Applied Informatics is a level 8 programme. The duration of the course is 1 year full-time and part-time duration is over a longer period.

This programme provides a professional development pathway for graduates with a relevant degree. Students will learn about the social, cultural, and organisational settings in which information is used. Areas of specialisation could include e-commerce, strategic planning, organisational behaviour, and services management.

Informatics has to do with the science of information and the practice of information management. Information plays an increasingly pervasive role in our daily lives. How we relate to technology and how technology relates to us is becoming progressively more important. Information systems need to be engineered to deliver data in a way that accurately reaches, communicates with, and influences its intended recipients.

This programme is about the use of information systems as solutions in business environments. Students will learn how the analysis and implementation of information systems can deliver information to the right people in the most effective time and ways.

Entry requirement: a degree (or equivalent) that incorporates applied information technology studies and any other degree (or equivalent) and at least two years’ experience of designing and/or developing and/or customising an information system in a business context (including the education, health, government and not‐for‐profit sectors).

English language required with IELTS score of 6.5 in the academic band, with no individual band score lower than 6.0.
