Course summary

Develop theoretical and practical abilities in software design, development and experimentation, to become an innovative computing professional. Our courses cover a broad range of areas in computer science, exploring the traditional software and logic aspects of the subject, with special attention to its underlying mathematics. You’ll gain a solid foundation in computer science with rigorous theory and practical experience. The course brings together mathematical foundations, artificial intelligence, software design and development, interaction design, computer graphics and vision. This course is for you if you’re interested in studying computer science but want to wait until later in your degree before deciding what area to specialise in. In the first year, you’ll learn the basics of computer science, including mathematics and programming skills, followed by more advanced and specialised units in the second and final years. In the second year, you will complete a group project with other students to design and build an interactive application. In the final year, you will choose optional units alongside an individual project that combines your interests in a specific area of computer science. You’ll regularly meet with an academic who specialises in your chosen field. If you want a more in-depth study experience, you could consider applying for our MComp Computer Science course.

Qualification requirements

GSCE requirements: GCSE English grade C or 4. For further qualification information and English language equivalence please see: GCSE grades are an important part of selection for this course and we typically expect students to have a good number of GCSEs at grade 7-9 or A-A*. You GCSE grades in Mathematics and Physics are particularly important and we typically expect grade 8-9 in at least one of these subjects. Combinations of qualifications Your application will be considered individually based on the particular combination of qualifications and subjects that you are taking. We can consider combinations of accepted qualifications, of which some common examples are: A*A at A level including Mathematics plus D in the BTEC National Extended Certificate (RQF) OR the Cambridge Technical Extended Certificate (RQF) A*A at A level plus D3 in a Pre-U principal subject including Mathematics A*A at A level including Mathematics (excluding Accounting), plus A in the LIBF Level 3 Diploma in Financial Studies (DipFS). We can also consider combinations that are not listed and that do not include A levels. You should read the information about essential and preferred subjects and subject combinations. We cannot consider different qualifications in the same subject area.
