Practical Information

The BSc (Hons) in Computer Science programme is a graduate level 4, 5 and 6 course, in accordance with framework for Higher Education Qualifications in England, Wales and Northern Ireland (FHEQ).

DMU programmes and partnerships are quality assured by the Quality Assurance Agency for Higher Education.

To comply with Danish regulations on the provision of Higher Education programmes aimed at international students, approval has been obtained from the Danish Evaluation Institute (EVA).

The UK programmes from both De Montfort University and Middlesex University are regularly evaluated by the Danish Evaluation Institute (EVA). The EVA approvals are valid for three years and have a direct impact on the issuing of student visas by the Danish Immigration Authorities.
