Course summary

Canterbury Christ Church University has opted into the TEF and received a Silver award.

Find out more about the TEF.

A number of our degrees are also offered with an additional foundation year (Year 0). Whether you are a school-leaver or someone considering returning to study but don’t have the entry requirements for your chosen subject, a foundation year course may be just what you’re looking for. A foundation year is the first year of a four year programme which: •provides an introduction not only to study at University but also to your chosen subject •offers you a highly supportive environment where you can develop the self-confidence, knowledge, skills and understanding for further study. As the use of the internet, ‘big data’, simulation, and automation continues to grow, so does the need for computing scientists who can provide real solutions to real problems. This course has been designed so you can meet the demands of high-performance computing in industry. You will learn software development, machine architecture, problem modelling and parallel computing – among other things. The main emphasis of this degree is on the development of advanced software and the use of cutting-edge ideas to enable you to work with data on a massive scale – something employers are increasingly demanding.
