Short Term Project Work for MSc Computing Students

Posted: 23rd January 2020

Edinburgh Napier University has issued a call for placement or project support for its MSc Computing course. The MSc Computing with Professional Placement programme is directed toward the University’s international student community.

The 2 year programme will see students study a variety of modules including: Web Development, Database Systems, Information Systems, Security, User Experience and Business Intelligence & Reporting.

The minimum entry requirement onto the course is a Bachelor (Honours) Degree at a 2:1 or equivalent. The course is intended to give international students “valuable work experience in a UK-based organisation” whilst providing the opportunity for employers to capitalise on a pool of talented and enthusiastic student and give them a project of business benefit.

Placements will run for a minimum of 180 hours, starting in January 2020, and can be undertaken on part-time or full time basis.

Placements may be extended if the situation proves “mutually beneficial” for both the student and the employer and possible funding support is available.

Please contact Emily Napier for further information or 0131 455 2903
