*Programme modules listed are illustrative only and subject to change.

UK degrees are three years long whereas in China they are four, therefore we do accept students with certain qualifications directly into Year Two, which is the start of the main academic programme. Most students, however, enter into Year One, which provides you with a range of interesting modules, language classes and core skills for your degree.

Data Science and Big Data are interdisciplinary technology subjects covering mathematics, statistics and computer science. However this programme also combines entrepreneurship training and plenty of valuable internship and industry opportunities with tech companies in China.
