Achieving a degree in computing or a relevant subject can propel you towards a range of careers in the ever-evolving digital industry, such as cyber security, data science and more. With our Computing Online Degree Pathway, which consists of the first and second years of a degree, removing in-person lectures and restrictive timetables, you have the option to complete Year 1 and Year 2 within a year.

About Your Online Degree Pathway

This undergraduate online degree pathway in computing is made up of 240 credits and is designed as an online alternative to completing Year 1 and Year 2 at university. Studying with us will fast-track you to the final year of an associated Honours degree, which can be completed at our partnered university.

This has been made possible through our partnership with ATHE, an Ofqual-regulated global awarding organisation that spans more than 55 countries worldwide. ATHE partners with 25 UK and international universities, providing top-up degrees to learners seeking an alternative to traditional university learning.

The course is delivered online, through an engaging array of online learning materials. So, you will find your education both interesting and rewarding. As a self-paced online course, you can also work towards your qualification without pressure, around your existing commitments.

What Will You Learn?

The course will give you a comprehensive foundation of knowledge and skills, preparing you for diverse roles in the IT industry, such as programming and scripting, system analysis, design and problem-solving, and much more. Upon completion, you will possess a profound understanding of IT principles, applicable across various business environments.

As the online degree pathway progresses, you will cultivate skills relating to data, data structure, and databases. Additionally, you will delve into the realm of legislation, regulation, ethics and codes of practice, gaining insights into a vast scope of areas that are essential for a successful career in the IT space.

University Progression

Upon successful completion of Year 1 and Year 2 with us, you will be guaranteed admission to complete Year 3 of your undergraduate degree at the University of Bolton, named in the top 30 best UK universities in The Guardian guide (2024).

For example, you could study:

BSc (Hons) Computer Networks and Security – HE6 top-up 

Year 3 will be studied through blended learning with the University of Bolton. The fees for your third year are an additional cost and are paid separately to the university.

Study for a Degree Without Expensive Fees

If you want to get a head-start on your degree without having to commit to loan fees, then our Computing Online Degree Pathway is for you, as it covers Year 1 and Year 2. This programme is ideal for those of you who can’t commit to full-time study on a university campus, and you’d rather not pay nearly £30,000 in tuition fees! This programme offers a convenient home-based alternative to the initial two years of university study.

With the flexibility of online learning, you can bypass the constraints of fixed classes and timetables, enabling you to progress rapidly through the course materials. This newfound freedom empowers learners to reach their final year of university faster compared to traditional campus-based study.

A More Affordable Alternative

The latest change in student finance rules will see university graduates doubling their student loan repayments. This is in addition to repaying their student loans when they earn an annual salary of £25,000, instead of the £27,660 it was before.

With inflation and interest rates rising in the UK due to the ongoing cost of living crisis, university graduates are affected. For the 2022/23 academic year, there was a risk of student loan interest rates reaching 12%, further hitting the pockets of students.

Due to the current economic uncertainty, a university graduate could end up with an average of £42,900 of student loan debt, with tuition fees costing an average of £9,250 per year.

According to YouGov, 37% of people feel that current tuition fees are unfair, so it’s no surprise that many are looking for alternative options. Here at learndirect, we can offer you an affordable alternative that covers the first and second year of a degree for a fraction of the cost of the traditional route.

Please note, once you complete our online degree pathway, you will need to pay your select university to study the third year of your course.

Avoid Rise in Daily Living Costs

Our online degree pathway also helps you skip the other associated costs of a full-time university. By completing Year 1 and Year 2 online at home, there will be no student housing costs or travel expenses. You will also have the flexibility to integrate studying into your lifestyle without rearranging your existing commitments. So, if you’re currently working, you won’t have to give that up to get your degree.
