Our Computer Science degrees focus on how software and programming work to solve real world problems, together with advanced specialist content Computer Science, Games Technology, CyberSecurity or Data Science. The course will prepare you for a successful career in the technical areas of computer science by developing skills in analysis, design and programming as well as the specialisms.
The Foundation Year consists of 120 credits. You will take the following six core modules:
- Introduction to Programming with Python (20 credits)
- Web Development (20 credits)
- Computer Fundamentals (20 credits)
- Discrete Mathematics (20 credits)
- Introduction to Probability and Statistics (20 credits)
The Foundation Year employs continuous assessment based around frequent class tests and group work. Students can also expect a higher number of contact hours per week (around 14 hours) in the form of teaching and tutorials, than in the subsequent years of our Computer Science degrees where self-study plays a larger part. For Years 1, 2, and 3 see our BSc and MSci Computer Science, Games Technology, Cyber Security and Data Science web pages.
