Why study this course? Our Computer Science (including foundation year) BSc (Hons) degree has a built-in foundation year designed to teach you the fundamentals of computer science, preparing you for the following three years of your course. If you don’t have the traditional qualifications needed to start an undergraduate degree this course provides the perfect start to your computing career. More about this course Our Computer Science (including foundation year) BSc (Hons) degree will help you specialise in the design and implementation of modern software systems. During your foundation year you’ll learn to use a range of tools and development platforms designed to help you understand the role of computer-based systems. You’ll focus on the fundamentals of programming, cyber-attack prevention, computer networking and mathematics. These skills will help you progress through the following three years of the course. The foundation year on this course is shared with a number of other computing-related foundation degrees, which allows you to study with students who are interested in a variety of different subjects. Following the foundation year, you’ll study the same modules and course content as those who study our Computer Science BSc (Hons) degree. Later in the course you’ll learn more practice-based skills including weekly tutorial and workshop exercises. You’ll come to understand software design and programming language so that by the end of the course you’ll be able to confidently develop programmes of your own. You’ll be supported throughout the course by our tutors who will help you recognise your own strengths and build your academic confidence. Regular feedback will aid you in the transition from your foundation year to the final years of the course. You'll graduate with a full undergraduate degree with the same title and award as those who studied the traditional three-year course. Should you decide you want to specialise in a more specific computing-related subject following your foundation year, we will be able to facilitate this.
