Queen Mary University of London welcomes applications from students currently studying Level 3 BTEC qualifications and will consider you for entry to the majority of our undergraduate courses. The typical entry requirements will vary according to the course you are applying for. Some of our courses require specific subject knowledge which you may not be able to cover as part of a Level 3 BTEC qualification and we may therefore require additional Level 3 qualifications to ensure that you are suitably prepared for relevant courses. A small number of our courses do not accept BTEC qualifications for entry, either as a standalone qualification, or in combination with other qualifications at Level 3. Information on our typical entry requirements and guidance for applying can be found at http://www.qmul.ac.uk/undergraduate/entry/btec/ If you are at all unsure about the acceptability of your BTEC qualification for entry, please contact the Admissions team for individual advice (admissions@qmul.ac.uk).

Subject

Creative computing

The boundary between digital and creative roles is blurring, and few graduates have the combination of skills employers are looking for. Our BSc (Eng) Creative Computing addresses this shortage of talent, arming students with a portfolio of artistic, design and technical skills through an exciting and flexible programme.
You’ll learn core skills for new media production – interactive media design, arts computing and physical computing – as well as understanding the theory underpinning computer and multimedia systems. In the second year you’ll choose one of technology, design, geography/media or film production to study in depth, picking up all the practical and technical skills you’ll need to work in the creative industries. The final year offers a wide choice of modules, so you can fine-tune your learning to match your aims and interests. In your final-year individual project you can link your creative skills to research in the school, including e-textiles, interaction design and digital music, presenting your project in the Queen Mary Design Show.
You can also apply for this course:
· With Industrial Experience
· With Year Abroad

The Longitudinal Educational Outcomes dataset combines HRMC earnings data with student records from the Higher Education Statistics Agency.

While there are lots of factors at play when it comes to your future earnings, use this as a rough timeline of what graduates in this subject area were earning on average one, three and five years later. Can you see a steady increase in salary, or did grads need some experience under their belt before seeing a nice bump up in their pay packet?
