Develop theoretical and practical abilities in software design, development and experimentation, to become an innovative computing professional. 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. It's a broad-ranging course providing you with the knowledge to apply computer science methods to new and emerging computing problems, and learn skills highly valued by employers. You will gain a solid foundation in computer science with rigorous theory and practical experience. The course combines software systems design, software development, interaction design, artificial intelligence, computational mathematics, computer graphics, and vision. Tailor to your interests In the first year, you will learn the basics of computer science, including mathematics and programming skills, followed by more advanced and specialised units in the following years. In the second year, you'll complete a group project with other students to design and build an interactive application. You can specialise in a particular field through optional units and an individual project combining your interests in a specific area of computer science. You’ll regularly meet with an academic who specialises in your chosen field. Computer science master's The MComp provides you with the same core skills and knowledge as the BSc but with a greater exposure to and integration with our research groups in the Department. In your final year, you will choose optional units alongside a research project, which will be aligned to one of the research groups in the Department and will be based on your interests.

GSCE requirements: GCSE English grade C or 4. 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*. Your GCSE grades in Mathematics and Physics are particularly important and we typically expect grade 8-9 in at least one of these subjects. Your GCSE grades will be carefully considered as part of our contextual admissions process and depending on your circumstances, we may be able to consider you with GCSE grades of mostly 6 or B.
The student satisfaction data is from students surveyed during the Covid-19 pandemic. The number of student respondents and response rates can be important in interpreting the data – it is important to note your experience may be different from theirs. This data will be based on the subject area rather than the specific course. Read more about this data on the Discover Uni website.
