Modules

  • Year One

    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.

  • Year Two

  • Year Three

  • Year Four

This programme is an interesting mix of hardware and software: I have learnt about electronic technology, computer vision, and computer graphic technology. These are useful subjects to give you a grounding in AI, and possible job opportunities in multimedia security, image processing, and deep learning.
