Assessment/ Academic Standards and Quality

In order to maintain the quality and standard of the examinations conducted and several other assessment methods, all work of the 1st and 2nd years of the programme is subject to an internal verification process referred to as the ‘Internal Verification’, conducted by the ISVU (Internal Standard Verifiers’ Unit) where the internal verifiers approved by Edexcel UK will verify the work of all the students prior to finalizing of the results. The said verified work is then subject to third verification process called External Verification (EV) whereby representatives from the Edexcel UK visit the Institute twice a year to verify the work of the students. Every such EV is meticulously conducted based on previous EV reports setting out the feedback, comments and/or recommendations if necessary.

 

In respect of the final year, all examinations are conducted by the University and the coursework is submitted online to the University. Each student will have an IT account with the University whereby students are given the opportunity to access the relevant materials of prgramme as that of an internal student of the University. Furthermore, all academic work of the 3rd year is monitored by the Quality Assurance Unit of the University of Wolverhampton.

 

It is also to be noted that in respect of all academic years, a minimum of 80% attendance is mandatory for students to sit for the examinations and to submit relevant coursework. Furthermore, all 3rd year modules are delivered, corrected and moderated by the lectures of the University of Wolverhampton who deliver these modules to the internal students of the University in UK, thereby assuring that our students are exposed to a harmonious blend of local and international learning experience and so to maintain the same level of standard required by the University.

 

In order to facilitate the studies further and in addition to the online library facility, recommended books are available in the BCAS campus library along with internet facility.

 

Panel of Lecturers

A high-caliber, competent, and experienced panel of lecturers with several years of Industrial and corporate experience ensures that our students gain maximum exposure to the inner workings of the industries through Practical examples, case studies and examples which helps build the foundation for further graduate level studies and also for future employability, whilst providing them with the knowledge to obtain high pass rates. Our lecturers have been well trained in latest teaching techniques and multiple assessment methodologies.

 

Programs and Awards

As this degree program is approved by both Edexcel UK and UoW, upon successful completion of the first two academic years (Stage 1) the students are awarded BTEC HND in Computing and Systems Development by the Edexcel UK and the UoW awards BSc (Hons) in Computing degree upon completion of the entire three academic years (Stage 2).

 

Career Prospects

Graduates can enter a variety of IT sectors careers. Many of the employers linked to the degree offer graduate recruitment schemes. These can give you an idea of the kind of role that a successful Computing student could progress into. The programme’s employment/graduate prospects for Computing is increasingly higher over the years where graduates were employed with the industry or were continued further postgraduate studies in Masters and PhD.

 

Extra-Curricular Activities

The students have the opportunity of taking part in Extra-curricular activities such as CSR projects, exhibitions and etc… where the students can practice their time management and the leadership skills. Also students can do their own research on their respective fields with 24/7 open Research & Development department of School of computing.
