With Computer Science being one of the largest centres for applied research in its field in Europe, you can be confident that our courses are relevant and up-to-date. Added to this, our excellent record for employability, pursuit of innovation, commitment to supporting you in small groups at each level of your degree and vibrant campus environment make the department a friendly and supportive place to learn and develop.
Accredited by the British Computer Society, our undergraduate programmes in Business Computing and Computer Science offer all students a common foundation of practical computing concepts, theoretical foundations and project management skills that underpin the analysis, design, development and deployment of all kinds of computer systems – from large distributed enterprise systems to mobile apps.
As well as a good degree, experience helps you get a head start in the graduate employment market. That’s why we offer four-year sandwich degrees which give you the change to undertake a professional placement which will help you to develop professionally and personally. Doing a placement can help you to achieve a better degree classification, choose your career path, and secure a higher starting salary. We offer the following degree programmes:
Our foundation year course is designed to help you progress to a challenging and exciting career in computing or mathematics. Our carefully designed curriculum is particularly suitable for those who want to change direction, perhaps having taken A-levels in arts or humanities subjects, and for mature applicants returning to study. You will quickly find that willingness to learn and determination is more important than prior knowledge.
Once you have successfully completed your foundation year with the grades needed for your chosen computing or mathematics degree course, you progress directly into Level 1 of that degree –there’s no need to re-apply.
