Course summary

Computer science is the study of the theory, experimentation, and engineering used in the design and use of computers. The rise in digital technology has increased the demand for highly skilled professionals with a thorough understanding of key computing technologies, combined with the practical skills to solve software issues. Our Computing Science BSc (Hons) degree is designed to equip modern graduates to work in this exciting and constantly changing field. Throughout the programme, we teach graduates the academic, professional and personal skills required to develop within this evolving industry. Key Course Benefits

  • Small tutorial group sessions ensure that you receive the mentoring help and support you need.
  • We deliver one module at a time during each block. This means you can dedicate your time to specialise in each subject without the distraction of numerous modules and multiple deadlines.


Year one of the programme introduces you to the core fundamentals that underpin computing science. You will explore the importance of IT security and the risks posed to computer systems globally, and develop your professional problem-solving skills, as you understand the basic principles of programming. Modules include networking, operating systems, information security, and problem solving and programming. Students who successfully complete year one are eligible for a Higher National Certificate (HNC) in Computing Science. Year 2 works at a higher level to begin building your knowledge and understanding of computer hardware and web development. It covers programming concepts with a deeper investigation of algorithms and the importance of data security in today’s world. Students who successfully complete year two are eligible for a Higher National Diploma (HND) in Computing Science. An optional placement or sandwich year gives you the chance to gain further insight into the industry or career you are seeking to follow. By your final year you will be confident with key computing functions. You will explore hardware and software networking and popular operating systems at an advanced level. Learning modules include Big Data, Internet of Things, and Contemporary issues in Computing. Students who successfully complete the final year are awarded a BSc (Hons) in Computing Science.
