This course offers both a broad perspective on intelligent systems, covering evolutionary models, statistical and symbolic machine learning algorithms, qualitative reasoning, image processing, language understanding, and bio-computation with a thorough knowledge of the essential principles and practices used in the effective design, implementation and usability of intelligent systems.
The course is rooted in the established research strengths of the School and will offer you the opportunity to gain an in-depth understanding of an area of specialisation during the main research project where you will work as integral members of our research groups. You will apply your knowledge and skills to tackle a significant problem, which will prepare you for a graduate career in the IT industry or for further study.
The adoption of intelligent systems is increasing rapidly and varies from software agents used in networking systems to embedded systems in robots and unmanned vehicles to provide systems that can work unsupervised or to enhance human activities.

Universities in the United Kingdom use a centralized system of undergraduate application: University and College Admissions Service (UCAS). It is used by both domestic and international students. Students have to register on the UCAS website before applying to the university. They will find all the necessary information about the application process on this website. Some graduate courses also require registration on this website, but in most cases students have to apply directly to the university. Some universities also accept undergraduate application through Common App (the information about it could be found on universities' websites).
Both undergraduate and graduate students may receive three types of responses from the university. The first one, “unconditional offer” means that you already reached all requirements and may be admitted to the university. The second one, “conditional offer” makes your admission possible if you fulfill some criteria – for example, have good grades on final exams. The third one, “unsuccessful application” means that you, unfortunately, could not be admitted to the university of you choice.
All universities require personal statement, which should include the reasons to study in the UK and the information about personal and professional goals of the student and a transcript, which includes grades received in high school or in the previous university.
